  • Morocco Allows The Trapped Syrian Refugees To Get In


    Agencies (Qasioun) - Morocco has decided to allow the Syrian families who were trapped on its border with Algeria to enter the Kingdom, said Royal cabinet in a statement on Tuesday evening, describing the decision as a “human” gesture.


    The communiqué said on the basis of humanitarian considerations, King Mohammed VI has given his instructions to the authorities concerned for an immediate treatment of the situation of 13 Syrian families who have been blocked at the Algerian-Moroccan border for several weeks.


    The source added that this decision reflects the “humanist commitment of the Kingdom in the treatment of migratory issues and comes during these blessed days of the holy month of Ramadan, month of piety and solidarity.”


    “It is an exceptional measure dictated by humanistic values”, the King’s cabinet added.


    Forty-one refugees including women and children, had been suffering in dire conditions near the Moroccan town of Figuig where they have been stranded since April 17, 2017.
