President Ghali does not rule out reiteration of Gdeim Izik scenario in Guerguerat

Shaheed El Hafedh (Refugee Camps), 3 October 2020 (SPS) - President of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), Secretary General of the Polisario Front Brahim Ghali said Thursday evening that he did not rule out a reiteration of Gdeim Izik's scenario in Guerguerat, warning that "any attack on any Sahrawi citizen would mean a return to war.”

In an interview with the Algerian Public Television on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the Sahrawi National Unity Day, President Ghali said "he expects a reiteration of the Gdeim Izik scenario in Guerguerat.

He underlined "the unanimity of the Saharwi people as to the imperative closure of this passage.”

Warning that "any attack on any Sahrawi citizen would mean a return to war", President Ghali said “we don't want to go back to square zero and we do not want bloodshed, but unfortunately, we admit that the world we live in is only moving in the face of the shedding of the blood of innocents and I am afraid that the Sahrawi people will be forced to do so.”            

The SADR President reaffirmed that "more than ever before, the Sahrawi people remain attached to their unity and that no solution will only be accepted outside the self-determination and independence.”

"Younger generations are just as determined as the older ones. They are ready to fall in the field of honor to recover their rights,” stated Ghali. (SPS)
