The High Commissioner for Former Resistants and Former Members of the Liberation Army in Morocco has released a new collective publication entitled "The Battle of Ait Abdallah against the French Colonization."

The book gathers the works of a scientific symposium organized to discuss and preserve the research efforts exploring the great patriotic struggle and prowess of the Moroccan resistance.

The 257-page book compiles several studies carried out by a group of intellects active in the historic landscape of Morocco. It seeks to deepen discussions over the Moroccan resistance, in addition to expanding the research on the battle of Ait Abdallah against the French colonization.

The chapters of the book explore many aspects of resistance and studies about "the French colonial campaign on the Little Atlas and Ait Abdallah in the French Documents between 1912 and 1934," and "Resistance in Souss in the Moroccan Amazigh Poetry."

The High Commissioner said that it published the book as part of its goal to highlight the history of some regions and parties, and their battles and heroes who were not served justice by historians.
