Naval Force of the Sahrawi People’s Liberation Army, 1977-91
Career:

The Sahrawi people proclaimed their independence in February 1976 after Morocco and Mauritania invaded the Spanish colony of West Sahara. The Sahrawi organized their own armed forces, the Ejercito Popular de Liberación Saharaui. In 1977 they created a naval section of frogmen and “Zodiac” rubber dinghies to attack coastal shipping and fishing boats operating in Saharan waters. The attacks ceased after a ceasefire was agreed on 1991 and UN Security Council adopted a settlement plan which has yet to be complied with.
