    Spain has returned some of the thousands of migrants who entered the enclave of Ceuta on Monday to Morocco, Spanish Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska said on Tuesday, May 18. Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez visited the enclave, promising to “restore order”.

    The Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Arancha Gonzalez Laya, announced on Tuesday that she had summoned the Moroccan ambassador to Spain to express the “discontent” of the Spanish authorities. The diplomat was then “recalled for consultation” in Morocco, said the foreign ministry in Rabat.

    Grande-Marlaska spoke of around 6000 migrants have entered Spain, while police unions bring this figure to 9000. In addition, some 10 000 illegals are waiting their turn to enter the EU, according to the Spanish Police Confederation, the CEP.

    On the other side of the border, a resident was also amazed: “I’ve never seen anything like it. There is an anthill of people heading for the border; children, women, adolescents, whole families go there because they know that no one will stop them … Now that the tide has come down and people can walk through it, because the water does not cover the sand, it’s like a swimming pool. There are not only people from border towns, there are also people from Larache, and they tell me that they come on foot from further on the roads. They are almost all Moroccans, but I saw sub-Saharan women with their children heading for the pier. It’s scary. The Moroccan police do nothing, they look just like ordinary spectators.”

    Morocco’s inaction was not limited to the border area with Ceuta. Videos posted on their social networks by residents of Tangier illustrate what appears to be a massive departure of Sub-Saharans in boats from Ashkar beach, in Tangier, and others in Dakhla. These starting points, usually guarded by Moroccan forces, but which have however been unattended since last Sunday, when these uncontrolled departures began.

    Foreign Minister Arancha González Laya explained that the Moroccan authorities assured her that these incidents were not the result of “any disagreement”, referring to the presence in a hospital in Logroño of the leader of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali.

    Ghali was treated in a Spanish hospital for the Covid-19 in mid-April, which greatly displeased the Moroccan authorities. For more than 45 years, the conflict in Western Sahara has pitted Morocco against the Polisario Front, supported by Algeria.

      Most of the Moroccans who entered Ceuta will end up being sent back, per a long-standing agreement between the two countries. But Morocco is making its point, and in a memorable way. It is ridiculous to assume that this event was spontaneous or spur-of-the-moment. It is designed to show what Morocco can do to express its displeasure with the socialist government of Spain showing its ‘solidarity’ with a long-time leftist ally, namely the Polisario Front’s Brahim Ghali. He is a long-standing (half a century) enemy of Morocco, and the Moroccans take Spain’s admitting him for medical treament as an insult. They want the issue of former Spanish Sahara settled once and for all, but the Spanish left does not seem to want to do put this Cold War issue to rest. Maybe what Morocco has just done will change that.
