Hi Laetitlia, it looks very much like the Purple Martin which we have here in the states so I went online to find a cousin. I can't be positive but I'm pretty sure it's a Blue Swallow. If it has more of a Blue-Black plumage it would be a Saw-Wing Swallow and the underwings could be black or white in flight. Maybe someone with more knowledge of North African birds will give you a more detailed answer. Happy birding!!
