20 000 New Moroccan soldiers deployed in the Occupied T.Western Sahara

20.000 New Moroccan soldiers in civil clothes, deployed in the occupied cities of Western Sahara

El Aaiun (occupied capital of Western Sahara), 14/12/2005 (SPS) Moroccan Government reinforced its military and security apparatus in the occupied cities of Western Sahara "with new military units, composed of 20.000 soldiers, wearing civil clothes", SPS’s sources in the occupied territories affirmed.

"The first units, of 20.000 Moroccan soldiers, trained to street wars were deployed, by Rat, in the occupied cities of Western Sahara to reinforce the military and security apparatus already installed in the region. These new units are wearing civil clothes and will have to help the other Moroccan security and military corps in their daily repression against the Saharawi population, in uprising for the almost 7 months so far", one of the sources indicted.

This Monday, "units of this new repressive corps were deployed in intermediate and secondary schools in El Aaiun, while others in buses accompanied with military jeeps headed south after a brief passage in the Saharawi capital", the source added.

"The question is: Why are military forces wearing civil clothes deployed in Saharawi streets and schools?", one of the sources wondered, estimating that the only answer is that Rabat is decided "to support its policy of close repression against the Saharawi population, increasing the visible state of siege already ensured by the forces of police, GUS, armed forces and secret services in the different occupied cities of Western Sahara and south Morocco, and strengthen it with another state of siege, this time less notable, or at least hardly detectable".

"PWorst, the same source adds, I would say that Rabat is decided to keep on with its strategy of intimidation, torture assassination in public adopted against Saharawi demonstrators. And we still have a recent example on this strategy with the two odious crimes committed against two Martyrs, Hamdi Lembarki and Lekhlifi Aba Cheikh", two young Saharawis assassinated by Moroccan authorities in October in El Aaiun for the first and in December for the second in Tan Tan.

The President of the Republic, Mohamed Abdelaziz, recently called on UN’s Secretary General, Kofi Annan, to protect the Saharawi civil population in the occupied territories of Western Sahara, underlining that the measures of repression against this population, in addition of been "violating the most fundamental human rights’ and international laws’ norms, are pushing the situation to collective massacres", it should be recalled.
