The news that Morocco is reintroducing military conscription from October 1st has many Dutch-Moroccans worried that they will have to join the North African country's army for a year. But the conscription will probably not affect Moroccans who do not live in the country, according to the foundation for Dutch-Moroccans SMN, AD reports.
The Radicalization Helpline is currently in close contact with 68 families, of which more than half of the children have already traveled abroad to conflict areas. This is number is much higher than the organization expected.
The Cooperative Union of Dutch Moroccans SMN is launching a hotline and website for radicalization today, as a low-threshold arrangement for Moroccan Dutch parents who suspect that their children may be considering jihad and who don’t know what to do about it.
