Washington DC - Moroccans are accustomed to the Algerian press provocations. Since the beginning of the Western Sahara conflict between the two nations, media outlets close to the DRS (Algerian military intelligence) have circulated propaganda stories aimed at discrediting Morocco in the eyes of the Algerian public. For the most part the stories are “laughable,” however, DRS allegations recently published in the pro-military press  accusing Morocco of orchestrating terrorist attacks in Tunisia and encouraging ethnic clashes between Algerian Berbers and Arabs are despicable and must be countered.
