Is Morocco about to regain the buffer zones east of the security wall and designate the “Polisario” militia as a terrorist movement?
Security Council Resolution 2654 constituted an important milestone in the issue of the Moroccan Sahara. It spoke in precise language, laid out specific demands, referred to Algeria as a principal party to the conflict, and called on it to develop and clarify its positions to find appropriate solutions. The UN resolution also condemned for the first time in a way Frank about the obstacles set by the “Polisario” militia to disrupt the tasks of MINURSO, where he criticized these actions that targeted members of the UN mission and stressed that they are unacceptable practices.
The UN resolution also called for a review of how humanitarian aid is distributed to the Tindouf camps and called on humanitarian organizations to supervise and monitor the distribution of such aid under United Nations standards.
The language of the UN resolution and the quality of the specific demands it made are considered a severe blow to the separatist project, and the Algerian military regime may try to circumvent it.
The application of the UNSC resolution 2654 means, first, the end of using detainees and the UN’s supervision of the distribution of humanitarian aid and the census of the population of the Tindouf camps. Moreover, it will lead to revealing their origins, which would expose the political and historical responsibility of the Algerian military regime in this fabricated conflict, and on the other hand, would put an end to the looting of humanitarian aid by the leadership of the “Polisario” militias, the Algerian generals, and by the Algerian Red Crescent. It will become apparent to the world that a tiny percentage Only from the inhabitants of the Tindouf camps are those who descend from the Moroccan Sahara regions, the subject of the artificial conflict, and that the Algerian military regime brought the overwhelming majority, in the seventies of the last century, from Mauritania, the Azawad region, southern Algeria, and Niger.
The statements of the Algerian military regime and the “Polisario” militias, rejecting UNSC Resolution 2654, accusing the United Nations of siding with Morocco, are considered the beginning of the countdown to resolving the Sahara conflict on the ground, as a first step before resolving it within the corridors of the United Nations.
After the international community learned accurate information and confirmed data provided by Morocco and its allies, which clearly show and demonstrate that the “Polisario” militias obtained Iranian Drones through Algeria and their explicit intention to use them in launching terrorist attacks targeting civilians in the depths of the southern Moroccan cities, Morocco has the right In legitimate self-defense.
Since the separatist “Polisario” militias have demonstrated their absolute disavowal of the cease-fire agreement signed in 1991, The Moroccan move to extend sovereignty over the lands east of the security wall will be a legal step and in line with the vision of the international community.
It is not a secret that the Algerian military regime has linked its fate and survival, for decades, to the issue of the Moroccan Sahara.
Because of the Algerian rejection of the outcomes of the UNSC resolution 2654, its failure to respond to the world community’s demand to conduct a census in the Tindouf camps, and the impossibility of allowing a controlled distribution of the Humanitarian Aid, which generated enormous sums of money for the Algerian Generals, For all this Morocco will resolve the battle politically and on the ground very shortly.
Thus, the issue of the Moroccan Sahara enters three critical junctures:
1- The expulsion of the fictitious republic from the membership of the African Union, given the continued violation of Articles 3 (b) and 4 (b) of the Constitutive Act of the African Union. The presence of its sign threatens African unity, impedes all political or economic integration, and poses an explicit threat to stability and security in the region because of its intersection with the security dilemma in the African Sahel region.
2- Morocco’s attempt to recover the buffer zone east of the security wall and to extend full sovereignty over it, which is currently considered a forbidden territory to the “Polisario” militias, the Algerian military, and others, under the absolute air control of the Royal Armed Forces’ aircraft.
3- The decisive stage, which will be parallel to all of the above, is represented in the Algerian military regime’s continued adherence to its refusal to participate in the round tables, its rejection of the autonomy proposal, its continued evasion of sitting at the dialogue table with Morocco, and its persistence in threatening the security and stability of the region. It will inevitably lead to the classification of the “Polisario” militia as a terrorist movement by the international community, and the designation of Algeria as a rogue state as its ally Iran, a threat to international security and stability, and the subject of various international sanctions, which will exacerbate its fragile internal situation, and make it vulnerable to multiple risks.
