Education is set to resume in several earthquake-affected regions of Morocco, starting within dedicated tents from today, Monday, according to local sources reported by Al Ghad TV.

The channel's correspondent in the Taroudant region of Morocco reported that tents have been provided in remote and affected areas to serve as places of learning as the new school year begins.

In other regions unaffected by the earthquake, educational activities are proceeding as usual, especially since the earthquake struck mountainous areas and villages near Marrakech, sparing the rest of Morocco from significant damage.

The Moroccan military has been deployed to several remote villages to provide additional tents for educational purposes.

The correspondent noted that many springs have sprung to life in the wadis of the Atlas Mountains following the earthquake, bringing water back to previously dry valleys.

These wadis were dry, but life has returned to them with the eruption of these springs and the flow of water.

On social media, various videos circulated showing the eruption of springs in different areas of the Atlas Mountains following the earthquake.
