The Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister in charge of the National Defense Administration, Abdellatif Loudiyi, stated that about 50,000 soldiers have been permanently mobilized to guard the borders, and important financial resource has been allocated to facilitate their movement and training.
According to Loudiyi, these important human resources are charged with the security, control and guarding of the land borders at a length of about 3,300 km, and the guarding and control of coasts at a distance of approximately 3,500 km, also monitoring Morocco’s airspace.
The ground forces rely on important human and financial resources through fixed and support points, for monitoring the land borders and the coast, with an electronic monitoring system that includes fixed and mobile radars and small drones.
The Royal Air Force is making an effective contribution to guarding the air borders through the use of fixed radars for air control, against any air penetration, Lodiyi confirmed.
Meanwhile, the Royal Navy is constantly monitoring and confronting illegal activities within the territorial waters by means of marine surveillance radars, in addition to mobilizing intervention units along the coasts.
The Royal Gendarmerie contributes its part to monitoring the borders against all threats, as well as providing support at several levels, including land, air and sea.
