Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Will Morocco and Polisario go to war? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
A thirty-year old ceasefire is over in the disputed territory of Western Sahara. That’s according to the pro-independence Polisario Front. It says Moroccan troops have launched an attack in the region. Morocco’s military says it has only set-up a “security cordon” after elements of the Polisario front blocked traffic on the only road linking it Mauritania and the rest of Africa. So, could this be the end of the ceasefire in Western Sahara? Presenter: Bernard Smith Guests Sidi Omar, Representative of the Frente POLISARIO at the United Nations in New York Yasmine Hasnaoui, North Africa Specialist and Board member of the Institute of Saharan Studies Al Andalous Riccardo Fabiani, Project Director covering North Africa at the International Crisis Group. –Al Jazeera English YouTube Channel
