El-Aaiun (Occupied Zones), Oct 6, 2017 (SPS) - The Moroccan forces on Thursday evening intervened violently against peaceful Sahrawi demonstrators who took to the streets of the occupied city of El-Aaiun, in response to a call by the committee of the families of the Gdeim Izik group prisoners, to express solidarity with the Sahrawi political prisoners in Moroccan prisons and demand their release.

In an attempt to prevent the demonstration, the Moroccan forces started since the early hours of the midday besieging the allays and streets leading to the place of the demonstration, before it intervenes brutally in the first minutes against a group of peaceful protesters, resulting in many injuries among the protesters.
