Algeria wants to take over the Atlas Lions


After the historic and exceptional journey of the Moroccan team at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, Algeria is seeking to appropriate the Atlas Lions.

The Atlas Lions are Algerians! Algerian analysts launch a controversy. On a television set, a presenter and his two guests claimed that the Atlas lions are in Algeria and not in Morocco. One of the specialists goes so far as to say that 70% of the Atlas Mountains, a series of mountain ranges in northwestern Africa, are in Algeria. According to them, it is the team of Algeria (Fennecs) which should bear the name Lions of the Atlas and not that of Morocco.

Such claims are implausible, as the three highest Atlas Mountains are in Morocco. These are Jebel Toubkal, 4,167 meters above sea level in the High Atlas (Morocco), Jebel Ouanoukrim, 4,089 meters above sea level in the High Atlas and Ighil M’Goun, 4,071 meters above sea level. altitude in the High Atlas.

In Algeria, on the other hand, the highest peak is Mont Tahat, which rises to an altitude of only 2918 m.
