Cuban Parliament Condemns Moroccan Attack on Sahrawi People Havana, Nov 12. – The National Assembly of People's Power on Friday condemned the attack by Moroccan military forces on the Sahrawi protest camp of Gdeim Izik, near El Aaiun.

In a statement published by Granma newspaper, the Cuban Parliament described as despicable the Moroccan troop actions against a tent camp with over 20,000 civilian which left at least 13 dead and over 60 injured.
