Today 18 February is the national day of the Sahrawi mother. This day is in memory of a mother

Today 18 February is the national day of the Sahrawi mother. This day is in memory of a mother, a Sahrawi nurse who in the course of exercising her profession in a refugee camp called Um Dreiga (southern Western Sahara) is killed by the Andoain and white phosphorus bombs that threw the planes from the Moroccan invasion. Here is an account of Professor Gali Zubeir, a survivor of that massacre.
To not forget...
The massacre of Um Dreiga.. Unpunished crime, was not followed and continues without punishment
Today is the fortieth anniversary of the brutal bombardment moroccaning the civilian population of Sahrawis, the Sahrawi population of Um Dreiga, who killed and murdered dozens of women, children and the elderly, who were killed and wounded as a result of this brutal attack , which was repeated for three days causing a massive exodus of hundreds of thousands of Sahrawi civilians from their homes to escape the genocide practiced by the Moroccan occupation and which still remains as practised by the Moroccan occupation against Sahrawi civilians.

At eleven hours on 18 February 1976 four warships 18 Moroccan planes fell on the camp of a Dreiga, which concentrated a large number of Sahrawi civilians fleeing the Moroccan invasion Mauritani and were bombarded with phosphorus White and napalm, banned internationally, as witnessed by the mission of the Swiss Red Cross, who received the wounded later.
The paradox is when the pilot who bombed the settlement of a Dreiga falls prisoner and ratifies the facts about the bombing of a Um Dreiga's camp after dropping his plane, he acknowledged that he had told his commanders that the population that was being bombed is a pobl of civilians, but that the orders of their superiors were that bombarded the campameto without hesitation...
The horrific bombings were repeated on 19 and 20 February in a treacherous way that left dozens of victims and maimed with deep-seated physical and psychological wounds and live in our collective memory
