Algeria strongly condemns the targeted assassinations committed by means of sophisticated weapons of war by the Kingdom of Morocco, outside its internationally recognized borders, against innocent civilians, nationals of three countries in the region.
These bellicose practices are similar to repetitive acts of State terrorism and take on the characteristics of extrajudicial executions liable to prosecution before the competent organs of the United Nations system. This relentlessness against civilians through intentional and premeditated homicides constitutes a serious systemic violation of international humanitarian law which must be vigorously denounced and resolutely deterred.
This headlong rush by the Moroccan occupying power constitutes a persistent challenge to international legality and exposes the region to particularly dangerous developments.
The adventurism of the expansionist aims of the Kingdom of Morocco must challenge the Security Council of the United Nations as well as the Personal Envoy of the Secretary General, Staffan De Mistura, whose mission and appeasement efforts are seriously jeopardized by these serious and repeated breaches of security in the occupied Sahrawi territories and their immediate vicinity with serious risks of potentially perilous regional drifts.
