Moroccans have been preoccupied in recent hours with the incident of the loss of two players from the Tangier Football Club, after their boat drifted due to winds and waves, during a tourist tour on the shores of the city of Tetouan in northern Morocco, where their fate is not yet known.

In the details of the incident, 5 players from the Ittihad Tangier team decided to go out on Saturday for a sea excursion on a small tourist boat, and they all jumped into the water to swim, but the winds and waves took the boat away from them a long distance, so they were unable to catch it. 

The civil defense crews then intervened and were able to save 3 players, while two players are still missing. This concerns the players Salman Al-Harrak and Abdul Latif Akhrif.

Search operations are still continuing on the beaches of Tetouan, Fnideq, Martil and M'diq, to ​​determine their location, while there is anticipation among families and sports fans.

The absence of any news about the fate of the missing players raises concern and sympathy among Moroccans, especially after the chances of finding them alive diminished, more than 24 hours after the accident occurred, expressing their hope for a miracle.
