    hashas Since its creation in 1973, the Polisario has maintained the lie of being the sole legitimate representative of the Saharawis, aided by its Algerian godfather and its thugs like South Africa. Daily Asaba In its edition on Monday, December 5, led by popular Congress jokes, the cops have taken several steps to support this lie. Festivals of the past Soviet era managed to trick some of the population of the Tintof camps. But, with time, the consciousness of isolated citizens gradually expanded and these conferences could not maintain internal unity. These forums have become rings of tribal conflict and the blessing of the Algerian security apparatus. Instead of being spaces for evaluation and self-criticism, these conferences have become “slave markets” where decencies are sold and considerable sums are spent. It should be noted that some of the money comes from humanitarian aid provided by international organizations and is intended for the population of the camps. In 2019, a company run by a relative of a general monopolized two million euros in aid going into the pockets of Algerian food...
    Bahiya Old Ba Ali, until then the spokesman for the Sahrawi Movement for Peace, had been staying in Spain since leaving the Tintouf camps where his family members were staying. Longingly, Bahia naively offered his resignation, hoping to gain the Polisario’s mercy. But his merciless tolerance of anyone who dared attack the chief or his entourage was unrelenting. Therefore, he decided to go to Tintouf, where he wanted to join his people in the camps of isolated Sahrawis. To do this, the Polisario’s representative in the Mauritanian city of Surat granted him safe conduct. Aware of his journey, his family awaited his arrival at a checkpoint on the Mauritanian-Algerian border last Thursday, but uncertainty arose as it was a waste of time. In the Tintouf camps, there were no illusions about Bahia’s fate. Some speak of kidnapping, while others call for a transfer to one of the Polisario prisons scattered across the region. No one could determine where Old Aba Ali was taken, except the militiamen who had arrested him. Like the fate of many...

This article is a press review excerpted from Al Ahdad Al Maghribiya newspaper. hashas The fraud of humanitarian aid by the Polisario leadership is no longer a secret to anyone, as investigations, reports from the European Union and other humanitarian organizations have repeatedly condemned it.

    Since 1975, thousands of Sahrawi people have lived in five refugee camps in the Algerian Sahara. They named these camps after cities in Western Sahara: Ausserd, Boujdour, Dakhla, Laayoune, and Smara. In a straight line, Smara the camp is some 400 kilometers from Smara the city. But a sand berm, built in the 1980s by Morocco, makes the distance unassailable. At 2,700 kilometers, the berm is the second-longest military fortification in the world, after the Great Wall of China. Reinforced with ditches and barbed wire fences, artillery and tanks, guarded outposts, and millions of land mines, the sand berm partitions Western Sahara—separating 80 percent of Western Sahara controlled by Morocco from the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic—which is recognized by the United Nations as the last “non-self-governing territory” in Africa. In 1991, MINURSO, the UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara, announced a plebiscite that would give the Sahrawi people a choice: independence or integration with Morocco. In April 1991, the Sahrawi people packed their belongings in boxes, choosing the former. This article was produced by Globetrotter.Seeking access to Western...

    The Minurso trial will be opened following the killing of 4 Sahrawis by the Algerian army. As usual, the Polisario wanted to blame Morocco, a fake news story that included an incredible story about the destruction of a Moroccan military base using a drone.

    The new military alliance between Morocco and Israel, between the revolution and its ayatollahs, gives the Iranian regime the perfect excuse to strengthen its ties with Algeria, Tunisia and Mali in the battle for Western Sahara and regional supremacy. As Russia, China and Turkey have done in recent years, the Islamic State is taking advantage of the continent’s anti-Western sentiment and many economic opportunities to increase its presence in Africa in general and the Maghreb in particular, the analysis said.
