Thousands of people are suffering between Spain and Morocco dispute. These people entered Spain from Marocco. Those sent back by the security forces.
Today we are going to talk about those two countries which are using refugees like a spin ball. These are the people who do not have their own home (Spain and Morocco). The whole affair started when Morocco sent its refugees living in Spain to shock Spain.
These migrants came from Libya and other African countries to stay here to escape the war. These people are willing to go to Europe for a better life (Spain Morocco Border Dispute). On 17 May, Morocco relaxed its country border, which is directly from Spain. After which the refugees started fleeing to Spain.
Refugees also came to Spain by boat in a water way. After which Spain has sent back more than 6600 out of about 8 thousand people (Spain Morocco Issue). As soon as the migrants entered, the Spanish security forces intensified their efforts to send them back, after which people stopped coming.
There was a lot of controversy over this matter last week. Both countries accused each other. Spain accused Morocco of even blackmailing itself (Spain Morocco Crisis). At the European Union summit, Spain said that Morocco should respect the border with it. There are still 1000 minor refugees in Spain.
Now the question may be coming in your mind, why did Morocco do such a sudden? Actually, a man named Brahim Ghali was hospitalized in Spain after being infected with COVID-19. He is the leader of a group called the Polisario Front (Spain and Morocco). The purpose of this group is to drive Morocco out of the Western Sahara. Which he (Morocco) has occupied since 1970.
Morocco considers Ghali a terrorist. Moroccan officials say Ghali entered Spain by fake name with an Algerian passport, which is not acceptable (Spain Morocco Border Crossing). Morocco said that if the treatment of ghaliis is done in Spain, it will spoil the relationship between the two countries.
Spain refused to obey Morocco and said it could not refuse treatment. When Spain did not listen to one of Morocco, it opened its border to send refugees to Europe and sent them to Spain via army. So that a refugee crisis can be created in Spain.
