Rabat – The allegations relayed on pages of social networks claiming that “elements of the auxiliary forces in Imzouren have threatened to collectively abandon their positions,” are false and unfounded, emanate from individuals seeking to mislead the national public opinion, said Thursday the Ministry of the Interior. “Some pages on social networks have reported false allegations and misrepresentations about certain elements of the auxiliary forces in Imzouren who have allegedly threatened to abandon their positions collectively,” the ministry said in a statement. “What has been relayed is unfounded, an obvious lie and an insidious fabrication of facts and events, and is part of the designs of certain individuals seeking to mislead public opinion,” added the same source. Over the weekend, many demonstrations have been reported in the provinces near Al Hoceima, notably in Imzouren and Beni Bouyaach. Solidarity rallies were also held in other northern cities, such as Tangier and Nador, as well as in Rabat and Casablanca on Tuesday. According to a final official account, since Friday, police have made about forty arrests aimed essentially at the core of the “hirak”. Since the start of the “Hirak,” social networks have been another battlefield for the protesters.The Ministry of Interior published on Wednesday’s evening a call for “vigilance” against the dissemination of official information falsely attributed to it on social networks and instant messengers.
