Algeria decided to immediately close its airspace to Moroccan aviation, according to an announcement issued Wednesday evening by the Algerian presidency. Could the issue of the self-determination movement in the Kabylie region be the source of such a decision?

Morocco will no longer be able to fly over Algerian airspace, and this is an additional reason to think about landing its plane on Algerian soil. This is how the Algerian authorities decided, Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at the conclusion of the work of the Supreme Security Council, headed by the President of the Algerian Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune.

To justify this decision, the Algerian authorities say that they are motivated to the fullest extent “in the face of continuous Moroccan provocations and hostile practices” towards the neighbour. Therefore, Algeria decided to “immediately close the airspace of all Moroccan aircraft, civil and military.”

The Algerian authorities go further, including in their blacklist all devices registered in the Sharif kingdom. Accordingly, aircraft “with a Moroccan registration number” are prohibited from entering Algerian airspace “as of today” (Wednesday, September 22, 2021).

This ban comes less than a month after Algeria’s decision on August 24th to cut diplomatic ties with Rabat. It also intervenes on the same day of the announcement of a conference in Paris, scheduled to be held on Friday, September 24, 2021, at the initiative of the self-determination movement in the Kabylie region, with the aim of limiting places. After filing a complaint against the Algerian authorities.

This “complaint of genocide, initiated by the Movement for the Self-Determination of Kabylia and the Provisional Government of Kabylia in Exile (GPK – ANAVAD)”, which targets “Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, Chief of Staff (Algerians).) Army Said Chanegriha as well as military officials Other (Algerians)”, could have been deposited” with the International Criminal Court in The Hague”.
