Heat and lambs in the critical period of Operation Passage of the Strait 2023

  • Only last Saturday and Sunday almost 50,000 people and more than 11,000 vehicles crossed the Strait through Algeciras and Tarifa heading to Ceuta and Tangier

  • This Thursday Morocco and the Muslim communities of Ceuta and Melilla will celebrate Aid el Adha or Lamb Festival, the first hot spot of a torrid summer

“You’re going on vacation, huh? Are you happy?”, repeats a Civil Guard agent at the border control in Tarifa to two little brothers of about four or five years old who play with the small fence located next to the Benemérita cabin while their parents present their passports to the authority and wait for it to review and seal them. The kids answer yes with a mocking look. They speak Spanish, like the vast majority of the families who embarked this Monday afternoon in the town of Cádiz on one of the ferries bound for the city of Tangier.
