  Spanish Morocco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Spanish Morocco (Arabic: الاحتلال الاسباني للمغرب‎), was the area of Morocco under colonial rule by Spain, established by the Treaty of Fez in 1912 and ending in 1956, when France and Spain recognised Moroccan independence.
The territories of Spanish Morocco included northern Morocco (the territory in between the cities of Ceuta and Melilla, Spanish since the 17th and 16th centuries respectively), the Tarfaya Strip, and Ifni.
Morocco responded by supporting the Army of Liberation uprising in these areas, and also widening the conflict to Spanish Sahara (which was not part of Spanish Morocco, but claimed by the Sultan as part of Greater Morocco).

 Morocco
The Vandal invasion in the early 5th century largely bypassed Morocco as it headed for the fertile region that is now Tunisia, and Morocco reverted to rule by Berber chieftains.
It was not until Idris I (a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad's daughter Fatima and the Caliph Ali) sought refuge from Baghdad that Morocco was subjugated to a single ruler.
The struggle for independence in Morocco was shorter and less harrowing than in neighbouring French Algeria, where the revolution was well under way by this date; this was partly because Morocco's colonial ties were much looser, and partly because Moroccan independence involved no substantial change in the form of government.

 Guardian | Morocco draws new territories into Parsley row
The foreign ministers of Spain and Morocco were preparing for tense talks in Rabat today as their spat over the tiny islet of Perejil threatened to widen into a bitter dispute over half a dozen territories.
Morocco, with its eyes on Anglo-Spanish negotiations over Gibraltar, was expected to try to turn today's talks into the opening round of a debate over the future of other disputed territories it claims.
However, the Spanish interior minister, Angel Acebes, told the ABC daily newspaper that the agreement put together by Mr Powell was the perfect solution to the dispute and did not mean that Spain had won a "victory".

The extended, lingering decline of the Spanish empire was due in large part, ironically, to its spectacular successes in the 15th and 16th centuries that led to the centuries of the treasure fleets bringing back silver and gold into the country from the American mines.

 European Press Review
According to Spain’s El País of July 15, a Moroccan spokesman called Spain’s reaction “totally disproportionate.” Morocco has long disputed the legitimacy of Spain’s remaining territories in North Africa: Ceuta and Melilla, two enclaves on the Moroccan mainland; and three island groups, including Perejil’s cluster, the Chafarinas.
Madrid concedes that its claim on Perejil is questionable—in official statements, the Spanish government has insisted simply that Morocco must abide by the “status quo”—but, as El País observed, “Doing nothing when there are Moroccan soldiers on Perejil has a price and could set a precedent.
The July 15 Financial Times said it may have been “Morocco’s opening salvo in a campaign to recover the Spanish enclaves.” According to the FT, “Spain accuses Rabat of failing to stem illegal immigration.
