The Moroccan Royal Gendarmerie and the Spanish Civil Guard are preparing to form joint patrols again to combat irregular immigration, as reported by the Spanish press. The authorities from both countries have decided to collaborate again to enhance surveillance at the ports of Algésiras and Tarifa, as well as along the coastline of Campo de Gibraltar.

These joint patrols, as detailed, will be tasked with “monitoring areas of special interest and impact, reinforcing surveillance of the port areas in Algésiras and Tarifa, commercial and fishing ports, as well as locations that may serve as arrival points for vessels used to transport irregular immigrants.”

It’s important to note that the joint patrols were halted in 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. But in 2023, the Moroccan and Spanish authorities resumed joint missions at the command posts of Almería and Granada, as well as on the Moroccan coasts, after conducting them.

Both countries are still working hard to fight against secret migration, which is a dangerous problem that takes more lives each year.
