ISIS terrorist cell dismantled in Morocco

The Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations (BCIJ) of the Directorate General of Territorial Surveillance (DGST) on Tuesday morning dismantled a terrorist cell affiliated to “Daech”, whose members were active in the towns of Tiznit and Sidi Slimane.

This large-scale security operation carried out by elements of the special force of the Rapid Intervention Brigade led to the arrest of 4 extremists, aged between 22 and 44, according to a BCIJ press release.

Searches carried out at the homes of the suspects led to the seizure of paramilitary equipment, including a tactical vest, a helmet, a sight, and a balaclava, in addition to extremist manuscripts and a set of electronic media which will be subjected to the necessary digital expertise, the same source added.

The initial investigation revealed that the members of this terrorist cell were engaged in suspicious operations, to mobilize the necessary financial resources and logistical support to carry out terrorist projects in the Kingdom to undermine public order.

The suspects, arrested in connection with this terrorist cell, were taken into custody for a preliminary investigation conducted under the supervision of the terrorism prosecutor’s office to identify all their terrorist plans and projects and elucidate the ramifications and possible links of this terrorist cell, which once again demonstrates the resurgence of terrorist threats, the press release concludes.
