By Manal Abdel Fattah

The separatist Polisariat Front, through one of its leaders from Tindouf on Algerian territory, directed public threats and direct incitement to create chaos and carry out terrorist attacks on Moroccan territory, approximately seven months after the separatist Front also claimed responsibility for the quadruple attack that the city of Smara was subjected to in the southern provinces of the Kingdom on October 29.

It resulted in the death of a young man andthe wounding of three others, two of whom are in critical condition, after the bombing affected three residential neighborhoods in the city, and the attack did not target any military bases or sites in the area.

This new escalation this time included a leaked audio recording of the prominent leader of the Polisario Front, Al-Bashir Mustafa Al-Sayyid, dating back to April 28, 2024, in which he addressed the residents of the southern provinces of the Kingdom, saying: “If we are here dying by the dozens in order to achieve a gain, then you can achieve gains.” With a little something, we have fewer chances than you do.” In reference to the separation wall that prevents secessionist infiltration into the Kingdom.

Al-Bashir Mustafa Al-Sayyid, who is also the brother of Wali Mustafa Al-Sayyid, founder of the separatist Polisario Front, continued by saying: With a few explosives, you can hit more targets than the targets they did during the war… And if you want explosives, God willing, we have them and they spoil in our warehouses. “.

After Bashir Mustafa al-Sayyid, accused of killing and torturing dozens of Mauritanians inside Polisario prisons during the period between 1975 and 1978, confirmed the Front’s readiness to arm those loyal to him among the residents of the region with enough explosives to ignite stable conditions inside the kingdom, he called on the separatists inside the country to work on recruiting the residents as well. He says: “Every man and woman among you must persuade three or four people every night to carry out bombing operations in Smara, Dakhla, Boujdour, and Laayoune… This is if you want the occupied land to be a volcano under the feet of the invaders.” Reference to Morocco.

Al-Bashir Mustafa Al-Sayyid, the leader of the movement opposing the head of the separatist front, Ibrahim Ghali, defended these terrorist attacks, stressing that this is the way that will distract Morocco from the separatist front in Tindouf, disperse its ideas and distribute its fire instead of focusing it on one point, and so that the enemy will be felt. (Morocco), that the ground is unsafe and he does not know where he will direct his fire.

More than 300 Moroccan figures denounced the terrorist attacks that targeted the city of Smara last November, which were claimed by the militias affiliated with the Polisario Front. They also called on the judicial authorities to bring all persons involved in this terrorist attack to justice and to circulate judicial search warrants to Interpol. To follow them.

According to the content of the document signed by these figures, the Smara attack classifies the militias of this separatist organization as a terrorist organization, calling for coordination with international actors in the field of combating terrorism in this regard after many of its members announced their adoption of this terrorist act that targeted safe civilians, as the signatories demanded. This petition calls on the United Nations to assume all its roles in maintaining peace and security in the region, and to move forward in implementing Security Council resolutions. The latest of which is Resolution 2703, which considered autonomy as the only solution to close the file, holding the Algerian state fully responsible as it is the incubator of the Polisario terrorist militia organization.

At the same time, a group of Western countries sent warnings to their citizens in Algeria, specifically the city of Tindouf, where camps for detainees held by the Polisario Front, including Britain, Spain, and the United States of America, of “acts of violence” and “kidnappings,” which are indicators that indicate “the growing awareness of the international community.” “The real roles that Polisario has begun to play in the region.”

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Abroad, Nasser Bourita, had reacted to the terrorist events in Smara, in a statement in which he said that Morocco is a state of institutions that respects the law and does not seek war or escalation, which is why it postponed responding to the “terrorist” bombings that the city witnessed, stressing that “ Escalation is not a goal for Morocco, nor does it want it, as it is a state of law-abiding institutions, and it has always acted with insight and wisdom in dealing with the provocations it faces and does not fall behind them.”

In the context of his speech, Bourita referred to the investigations initiated by the Moroccan judicial authorities, together with the United Nations Mission MINURSO, regarding the events that took place in the city of Smara, pointing out that the Kingdom “is the one who will determine when and how it will respond, as guaranteed by international law.”

While Morocco’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Omar Hilal, threatened the “Polisario” Front to respond to the “terrorist attack” in accordance with international law, the data about the projectiles used in this targeting are still not clear, especially since the separatist front targeted for the first time a city inside… Moroccan territory has been in the Sahara since the 1991 ceasefire agreement between the Polisario and the Kingdom of Morocco, under international auspices.
