Polisario-terrorism nexus unveiled once again | North Africa Post

The reward of 5 million dollars offered by the US to catch a former Polisario member and IS leader in Sahel vindicates once more Morocco’s fears of Polisario-run Tindouf camps becoming a target of recruitment by terrorist groups. Adnan Abou Walid al-Sahraoui, who is wanted by the US authorities with a generous price tag, is an ex-member of the Algeria-backed polisario separatist front and current chief of ISIS in Great Sahara (ISIS-GS) that killed four Green Berets in a 2017 ambush in Niger.

His case shows the threat posed by the perpetuation of the Sahara conflict as more and more disenchanted Sahraoui youth are increasingly recruited by terrorist groups and trafficking networks offering lucrative salaries.
