Before the Peace and Security Council (PSC) of the African Union (AU) in Addis Ababa, Morocco condemned the exploitation of refugees and the recruitment of children in the Tindouf camps by separatist militias and the ‘Algeria. The Kingdom never ceases to denounce this fact, so much so that a Jordanian newspaper echoed it.
That said, speaking at an AU PSC meeting on humanitarian action in Africa, thee Permanent Representative of the Kingdom of Morocco to the AU and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA-UN)Mohamed Arrouchi, said that the Kingdom of Morocco strongly condemns any exploitation of refugees and the recruitment of children in refugee camps by armed militias.
He further indicated that “the registration and documentation of refugees is an essential tool to ensure their protection against any abuse”. What Algeria and its offspring oppose, despite the recommendations of the Security Council. Mohamed Arrouchi likewise insisted ” to protect this vulnerable category from any exploitation by certain parties, who, under the pretext of providing assistance to refugees, exploit them to serve their restricted and malicious agendas, and divert the humanitarian aid intended for thems”.
Moreover, a Jordanian news site johinanews.com not to name it, published an article to this effect and describes the criminal threat posed by the Polisario to the entire region and the African continent. “The “+polisario+ is a creation of a country to establish a so-called hegemony in the North African region and on the whole African continent,” he said, adding that since the creation of this entity, this country has continued to support it. political, diplomatic, financial and military without which it could not survive or even exist. he writes.
Johinanews.com which goes in the direction of the speech of Mohamed Arrouchi underlines that “cand State, which he does not name but which one can easily guess, contributes to the perpetuation of fifty years of suffering and pain inflicted on the sequestered in the Tindouf camps by depriving them of their most elementary rights to freedom of movement or of expression or simply of their right to a decent life”.
Since its creation, continues the news site, ” The Polisario was an armed and paramilitary group inspired by Marxism and Leninism, which later evolved into alliances with terrorist groups operating in the Sahel region. As a reminder, the famous terrorist and criminal from the Sahel, known as Abou Adnan al-Sahraoui, was one of the senior executives of the “polisario” inside the Tindouf camps, as was the case for his deputy by the name of Abdelhakim al-Sahraoui, who was a former member of the separatist militia”.
And the site continues that since 2008, several operations to dismantle terrorist cells linked to jihadist groups operating in the Sahel and Sahara region have revealed links between the Polisario and terrorism in the region, and its members have joined the terrorist movements that abound in this region to implement a destructive agenda, that of targeting Morocco.
Among the terrorist movements which pledge allegiance to him and which include leaders and elements of the polisario, the newspaper quotes, the Al-Qaeda Organization in the Islamic Maghreb (Aqmi), Mourabitoun born in the merger of the Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa and “the signatories in blood” as well as Jamaat Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimeen, a military and terrorist organization that was formed in 2017. All are beholden to the polisario because it arms them.
For the newspaper, the Tindouf camps constitute fertile ground for the emergence of terrorist movements. They are mainly seen as a recruitment reserve for jihadists who have provided the various terrorist organizations active in this region with cannon fodder since the time of the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), which later became AQIM. Everything is done, indicates Johinanews.com, with the blessing and the complicity of the leadership of the “Polisario”, which operates under the complacent eye of the military regime of this “country”.
