The Syrian refugees who have been stranded in the borders separating Morocco and Algeria have finally been allowed to enter the Moroccan territory. Following the orders of King Mohammed VI «the 28 Syrian refugees entered Morocco after enduring harsh living conditions near the border town of Figuig», Middle East Monitor reports.

The 28 Syrian refugees were helped get out of the buffer zone in Figuig heading to Rabat when they were received yesterday at the headquarters of the National Council of Human Rights (CNDH). The same source points out that «today, they will start registering with the Moroccan office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Rabat».

Those refugees who have family members residing in Morocco will be reunited with them. Jean-Paul Cavaliéri, the UNHCR representative in Morocco told Huff post  Morocco that they «will work with the countries in question on the basis of the principle of family reunification».

For more than two months a group of Syrian refugees coming from Algeria were blocked in Figuig in a buffer zone between the two neighboring countries. Algeria has announced earlier that it will host the refugees.
