Belgium will soon sell 40 howitzers to Morocco, according to Belgium's De Standaard. Despite a domestic outcry against the sale, which will presumably go towards fighting Western Sahara nationalism, only an export license stands in the way of an enlarged Moroccan army.
While usually responsible countries selling weapons to Morocco is nothing new, the sale is interesting for two reasons. First, it raises a perennial questions for people interested in Africa: why is Belgium always doing nefarious things there?
More comfortingly, the howitzers are apparently crummy. According to the article, "The howitzers (self-propelled) are military fossils which fitted within strategic thinking during the Cold War." Still, if another war comes whatever equipment Morocco has will vastly outmatch Polisario's aging army.
Thanks to Sahara-Update for the translation. My Walloon isn't what it used to be.
