PUSL.- The Moroccan occupation authorities announced the closer of the Port of El Aaiun as an “preventive measure” against a second wave of covid 19.

With the official version of infected now at 874, the numbers seem far below from reality since the occupation authorities only acknowledged that there were hundreds of infected people after the arrival at coast of the Canary Islands of dozens of infected illegal emigrants and the news that were published in the foreign media.

Since the beginning of the pandemic infected moroccan settlers and workers have been sent to the occupied territories of Western Sahara.

In midst of a total media blackout in the occupied territories and the clear intent of reducing the Saharawi population by all means necessary, the occupation authorities are conducting a policy of intentional endangerment of the Saharawi population.
