Five Spanish policemen and around 50 members of the Moroccan forces were injured during the massive border raid, including one who lost an eye.

The army of migrants used weapons including metal bars as they attempt to breach gates and double fences to enter the small piece of Spanish territory.

Both Spanish and Moroccan authorities have responded with aggressive rhetoric, promising to punish and deport those responsible.

The migrants tried “to force open some of the doors in the external fence, using iron bars, wire cutters and large stones, with which they assaulted Moroccan forces and [Spanish] Guardia Civil [police] agents,” the central government’s representative office in Ceuta said in a statement.
