Morocco Builds Fresh Military Zone Near Algerian Border

Morocco has built a new military zone near border with Algeria. Moroccan-Algerian ties have been tense for decades against the backdrop of the disputed Sahara region between Rabat and the Algeria-backed Polisario Front.

According to the Royal Armed Forces magazine in its February edition, the military zone aims “to ensure consistency of the command, control and support among the Moroccan forces and to offer further flexibility and freedom of action when necessary.”

Major General Mohammed Miqdad was appointed a commander of the new military zone, the magazine said.

The publication, however, did not provide further details about the military zone.

The country borders Algeria from the east and south with a border length of 1,559 kilometers.
