Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara is similar to Israeli occupation of Palestine

Bojador (Saharwi Refugee Camps), December 06, 2016 (SPS) - The Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara is similar to the Israeli occupation of Palestine, said Monday, in Bojador, Moussa Mohamed El Khazendar, member of the Palestinian committee of solidarity with the Sahrawi people.

In a statement to the press, El Khazendar underlined that there are “similarities between the Sahrawi cause and the Palestinian cause, namely the injustice and repression of Moroccan and Israeli colonialisms.”

The Sahrawi people are suffering from the consequences of the Moroccan reactionary regime like the Palestinians who are facing bloody repression under the Israeli occupation, he underlined.

The official said that his participation in the 8th congress of the General Union of the Sahrawi workers of Saguia El-Hamra and Rio de Oro (UGTSARIO) comes not only to express the “solidarity with the Sahrawi people but also to reaffirm the support to their right to self-determination.”SPS
