Moroccan forces use violence against Sahrawi women in occupied El-Aaiun

El-Aaiun (Occupied Territories), March 9, 2019 (SPS) - Moroccan forces on Friday intervened violently against Sahrawi women who went out to demonstrate in the occupied capital  of Western Sahara, El-Aaiun, on International Women's Day.

The occupation forces have besieged Sahrawi women in the area of the so-called Colomina before they intervened violently, which led to many casualties among some of them with serious injuries.

Morocco has a black record in targeting Sahrawi women and violating their rights. (SPS)
