The Moroccan Coalition for Human Rights Organizations has reached out to Nasser Bourita, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccans Residing Abroad, seeking urgent intervention to compel the Moroccan Embassy in Ramallah to submit a list of Moroccans in Gaza to Egyptian authorities. The goal is to facilitate their temporary return to Morocco until the situation in the region becomes clearer.
In their message, the coalition emphasized the necessity for the Moroccan government to provide a private plane to transport women and children, who are victims of the conflict and war in Gaza. The urgency of the situation requires immediate intervention and care, with the coalition asserting that these individuals should be prioritized for assistance.
The coalition, comprising over 20 national organizations, pointed out that the Rafah crossing has been open for days to allow the departure of foreign citizens and Moroccan nationals. However, the departure is contingent on fulfilling certain procedures, including the submission of a pre-list of individuals desiring to leave by their respective embassies or their representatives to Egyptian authorities.
As the situation unfolds, the coalition’s appeal underscores the critical need for efficient and prompt actions to ensure the safety and well-being of Moroccans in Gaza, highlighting the complexities and challenges faced by those seeking to leave the conflict-affected area.
