No, they are political issues by POLISARIO, the Arabs who want Western Sahara to be independent. However, it is claimed and controlled by Morocco, which is not going to give this territory up.

The Sahrawi sets belong in this topic: Pseudo Sets, Pseudo Countries?.

Here is the latest set.
Does not appear to be issued from old source.

These are fantasies. They are not official issues or official collector issues. They are entirely unofficial.
