Three (3) Algerian nationals were cowardly murdered after their trucks were “barbarically bombarded” on the road linking Nouakchott to Ouargla, said Wednesday a statement of the Presidency of the Republic, which referred to several factors pointing to Morocco’s occupation forces in Western Sahara as “having committed this cowardly murder with sophisticated weaponry.”
“On November 1, 2021, while the Algerian people celebrate in joy and serenity the 67th anniversary of the outbreak of the glorious Revolution, three (03) Algerian nationals were cowardly murdered in a barbaric bombing of their trucks on the road linking Nouakchott to Ouargla, while they were in a natural movement of trade between the peoples of the region,” said the source.
“The Algerian authorities immediately took the necessary steps to investigate this despicable act and clarify the circumstances surrounding it,” the statement said.
According to the same source, “several factors point to Morocco’s occupation forces in Western Sahara as having committed with sophisticated weaponry this cowardly murder. This brutal aggressiveness is characteristic of a known policy of territorial expansion and terror.”
“On this glorious day of November 1st, the three innocent victims of this act of state terrorism join the Martyrs of the National Liberation War who have made New Algeria the citadel of the values and principles of its eternal history. Their murder will not go unpunished,” said the same source.
