Attacks on Saharawi activists by Moroccan forces

PUSL February 17, 2021.- It has been reported that siege, harassment, kidnapping, physical and sexual assault are recurrent practices that Moroccan occupation forces use against Saharawi men, women and children as a form of intimidation and submission in occupied Western Sahara.

Last November 28, in El-Aaiun, an attack on the home of Saharawi activist Ali Salem Tamek injured several occupants; previously, on November 19, in Bojador, activist Sultana Khaya and her family were beaten at the entrance to their home.

According to organizations in the field, these situations are recurrent.

I ask:
Are you aware of these situations that constitute human rights violations?

What steps have you taken with the Polisario Front to learn about humanitarian conditions in the occupied Saharawi territories?
