Morocco to Build 10 Monitoring Centers at Border with Algeria
The Moroccan army is set to establish ten new surveillance centers at the border with Algeria, to counter the rise of smuggling activities and the infiltration of terrorist elements within the Kingdom, reported local daily Al Massae in its weekend issue (17/18 February).
The new monitoring centers will be outfitted with sophisticated military equipment, including 33 surveillance cameras.
Morocco’s decision comes after Algeria set up new border surveillance points across the Moroccan cities of Oujda, Berkane, Taourirt and Jerada.
According to the daily, the new monitoring centers, meant to upgrade the security level at the border area, will become operational as of next April.
