El Aaiun (occupied territories) Moroccan repression forces have tightened the noose on Foum el-Oued beach in the occupied city of El Aaiun, capital of Western Sahara, after the uprising that erupted last week, according to the Ministry of Occupied Territories and Diaspora.
According to the source, Moroccan army and gendarmerie vehicles are controlling the way in and out of the beach, while Moroccan gendarmerie cars continue to harass the defenseless Saharawis.
Foum el-Oued beach witnessed peaceful demonstrations calling for the right of Saharawi people to self-determination and independence last week.
A group of young Saharawis were arrested, several women, elderly and children were assaulted, and several houses were raided, due to a violent intervention by Moroccan occupation forces against these demonstrations.
This siege comes as part of Moroccan systematic policy of tightening the noose on peaceful action, in the aim to deter the Saharawi citizens from continuing their just struggle for freedom and independence.
