New barbaric attack by Moroccan occupation forces on Sahrawi militant Sultana Khiya

Boujdour (Occupied Territories), 29 January 2022 (SPS) -  Member of the Saharawi body against the Moroccan occupation (ISACOM), Sultana Sid Brahim Khaya, was subjected to a new barbaric attack by the repressive services of the Moroccan occupation forces, in her family home in the occupied city of Boujdour, and the attack resulted in injuries to family members.

The Information Committee in the occupied city of Boujdour indicated in a statement that the aggression of the Makhzen forces against the family of the Sahrawi human rights defender came after the visit of another group of Sahrawi women activists to express their solidarity with her against the unjust siege she has been subjected to for more than a year, amid repressive practices that reached the point of attempting to physically liquidate her several times by injecting her with unknown substances.

This barbaric intervention resulted in injuries to Sultana Khaya and her sister Waara, as well as the elderly mother Aminatou, who suffers from several diseases, and the Sahrawi militants were forced to leave the place by force, and subjected to beatings and violence.
