Major Event

With the announcement Wednesday of the killing by French forces of the most wanted terrorist in West Africa Adnan Abu Walid al-Sahrawi, the international media could establish the link with Polisario and highlight the proven collusion between this group of mercenaries and terrorism in the Sahel.


Recalling the jihadist "record" of Abu Walid al-Sahrawi, the media returned in great detail to the process of radicalization of the latter in the camps of Tindouf, his training in Algeria, and then his enrollment in the Islamist armed movement which found, in the camps of the sequestered, a fertile ground to bloom, in the context of the disintegration of the separatist movement, the decay of its leadership and the absence of real prospects for the future of its youth.


An early Polisario activist, Abu Walid al-Sahrawi, whose real name is Lahbib Ould Abdi Ould Said Ould El Bachir, left the Tindouf camps in 2010 for Mali with some of his comrades to join the Tarik Ibn Zyad Katiba linked to Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (Aqmi).


A year later, he founded the Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa (Mujao) in the Gao region.


In October 2011, this radical movement carried out its first major operation by kidnapping two Spanish aid workers and an Italian woman in the Tindouf camps.
Since then, Abu Walid al-sahraoui has become, alongside the Algerian Mokhtar Belmokhtar, one of the most powerful jihadist leaders in the Sahel and the most wanted terrorist in West Africa.


In May 2015, he pledged allegiance to Daech and created "his franchise" in the region under the name "Islamic State in the Greater Sahara" (ISGS).


On October 4, 2017, he signed his first major massacre as a Daechian leader by attacking a Nigerien patrol accompanied by U.S. Special Forces in Tongo Tongo, Niger. The result: 5 Nigeriens and 4 Americans killed.


With this attack, he became one of the most wanted jihadists on the planet, with a $5 million price on his head from Washington.


At the end of February 2018, al-Sahraoui, wounded in an attack south of Indelimane in Mali, retreated to his family stronghold in the Tindouf camps for treatment.


Public enemy number one in the so-called tri-border area (Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger), al-Sahraoui was neutralized following a strike by the Barkhane force, but his soldiers continue to scour the desert, spreading terror and desolation. 


Last Saturday, two Moroccan truck drivers were killed and another was wounded by gunmen in the commune of Didiéni, located about 300 km from Bamako.


According to terrorism experts quoted by several media outlets, the modus operandi of this barbaric act is reminiscent of elements linked to the Polisario. According to them, the attack was motivated by the will of the separatists, at the instigation of Algeria, after the failure of the El Guerguerat operation, to dissuade Moroccan truckers from using this commercial route.


All these elements, which add to the black series of crimes perpetrated by the Polisario with the support of the Algerian army, militate in favor of the inclusion of this separatist group on the lists of global terrorism.


The U.S. Department of State, the UN and the European Union (EU), which have their respective lists of entities, groups or organizations involved in terrorist acts in the world and should be subject to restrictive measures, sanctions or international prosecution, can not remain unaffected by these revelations and the security threats that lurk in the Sahel-Saharan region around which the Polisario and the Algerian regime gravitate
