Algeria declares air space with Morocco re-opened

Algerian authorities announced on Saturday re-opening the country’s airspace for humanitarian flights for Morocco and expressed readiness to give a hand in relieving the victims of the strong earthquake that left more than 800 deaths.

The Algerian Presidency said in a statement that the authorities decided to reopen the air space for transporting aid and the injured.

Algeria is placing all available resources at the disposal of supporting Morocco, it said, expressing heartfelt condolences to the afflicted nation.

Algeria, in September 2019, decided to close the air space with Morocco in retaliation for what it described as “provocations and hostile practices” by Rabat.
