A group of Polisario mercenaries, who tried to carry out an attack against the defensive berm in the Moroccan Sahara were swiftly and firmly chased away by the Royal Moroccan Armed Forces.
According to reports cited by the Forum of support to the autonomists of Tindouf (Forsatin), the FAR elements destructed in the counterattack several vehicles and equipment of the Polisario group. Several mercenaries were also killed and others were injured.
The wounded militiamen were evacuated to a makeshift hospital, in the Tindouf camps and locked down under tight security, while their phones were confiscated, Forsatin said, noting that the measure was meant to prevent the leaking of any news about the Polisario’s failed operation or any posting on social media networks.
The polisario wants to hide its botched adventure to avoid a backlash among the militiamen and the population of Tindouf.
