Mauritania strengthens its border with the Sahara


Mauritania has just installed three surveillance radars near the border with the Sahara, in the town of Zouerate, about 700 kilometers north of Nouakchott.

Mauritanian Defense Minister Hanena Sidi announced the installation of these radars in Zouerate on Friday, a statement posted on the armed forces website said. A command, surveillance and information center will also be established in the town of Fderik, about 40 kilometers northwest of Zouerate, EFE reports.

“These installations aim to improve the capabilities and precision of air and land traffic surveillance in order to achieve the highest level of security,” said the minister, adding that they will also “make it possible” to strengthen the capacity of our army to air in order to preserve the territorial integrity of the country ”, which shares its borders with the Sahara.

In early November, three Algerian truckers were reportedly killed by a Moroccan drone attack. The Algerian presidency has accused Morocco of this “assassination”, assuring that the act “will not go unpunished”.
