President of Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic calls on UN Security General to "urgent intervention'' to protect Saharawi citizens in occupied Dakhla

Bir Lehlou (Western Sahara liberated territories) - Arab Maghreb independent press service - The President of the Republic, Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Mohamed Abdelaziz, has called on the Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, to "intervene urgently" to protect Sahrawi civilians in the occupied city of Dakhla, following the brutal intervention of the Moroccan occupying forces against peaceful demonstrators, in a letter reached SPS Friday.

President Mohamed Abdelaziz drew the attention of the UN Secretary General to that this new brutal intervention “occurred against peaceful citizens in the occupied city of Dakhla within territories under the direct responsibility of the United Nations, pending to accomplish, as soon as possible, its mission in the decolonization of Western Sahara.

The President warned against the consequences of a repetition of what had happened during the attack of Moroccan military forces on the Sahrawi exodus camps of Gdeim Izik and the occupied city of El Aaiun on November 8, in the occupied city of Dakhla which witnesses a very tight siege.

The letter called on Mr. Ban Ki-moon for the need to work to open the city to international observers and independent journalists, ensure freedom to communicate with these citizens and dispatch an international mission, as a matter of urgency, to investigate these serious events.

The President of the Republic pointed out that this recent brutal intervention requires expanding the powers of the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara, MINURSO, to include the protection of human rights in the region."
