The assault injured both activists, Mohamed Dadach at the leg and Aminetou Haidar at the cervical.

Activist Aminetu Haidar’s twitter reads: “Here is the Moroccan torturer who assaulted me this afternoon in occupied El Aaiun, he is following the orders of the members of the Moroccan expansionist regime, enjoying total impunity. ¡MINURSO over 29 years without a mandate to monitor human rights! ”

The right to free movement, expression and association was once again violently violated.
