Rabat – Morocco’s Directorate of National Security (DGSN) is planning to launch a security program to protect the “sensitive critical infrastructure from terrorism,” according to Moroccan news website Hespress.
Seeking to sustain the stability of the Kingdom, DGSN aims to step up its efforts to counter any “potential act of terrorism or any disruption” which might occur and negatively affect the strategic progress of the country.”
Since his appointment by King Mohammed VI as a Director General of DGSN last year, Abdellatif Hammouchi has prioritized the project as part of “securing Morocco’s stability by shielding the sensitive critical infrastructure such as ports, airports and dams, which are highly exposed to criminal threats.”
Speaking to Hespress, an informed source said, “This new program is aimed at classifying the more important critical infrastructure [pillars] of every city versus the less important ones, based on the risks that they may face… then include them among the country’s security interests, underline the security measures and intervene on time if any incident occurs.”
The same source continued, “DGSN will organize an event for security officials next Wednesday in order to put the finishing touches on this program before it comes into effect.”
