ISIS Terrorist Cell Dismantled in Morocco ‘Planned to Use Biological Weapons’

Rabat – The terrorist that busted on Thursday, is a “real commando” that planned terrorist attacks this Friday in Morocco, Director of the Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations (BCIJ), Abdelhak Khiame, said.

The ten-member terror cell, whose members pledged allegiance to the so-called Islamic State (ISIS), was planning attacks against public institutions and civil and military figures, Khiame said at a press briefing at the BCIJ headquarters in Salé (Rabat twin city).

What characterizes this cell is the nature of weapons brought from Libya, as they are made from toxic biological and chemical substances which could be used to make explosives, in addition to its recruitment of a French citizen and a 16-year-old man who received training to carry out a suicide car bomb attack, Khiame added.

He added that the cell members, who were active in the cities of Essaouira, Meknès and Sidi Kacem, and their leader (from Laayoune), received, after pledging allegiance to ISIS, several weapons from Libya, and military training near the southern city of Tan-Tan in order to carry out terrorist operations and undermine Morocco’s security and stability.

Khiame underlined that the terror cell set up a training camp in Sehb El Harcha (20 km from Tan-Tan), adding that they chose this site because of its resemblance with the zones of ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Most of the seized arms during this operation are made in Iraq and were smuggled into the Kingdom through Libya, he said, pointing out that the pressure on ISIS in Iraq and Syria has made the group thinking about exporting its activities to Libya, which suffers from instability, and collaborating its operations with other cells in the region through providing them with arms and money.

Among the seized weapons, there were four machine guns, three revolvers, an automatic pistol, a rifle, and important quantities of ammunition and thirteen teargas bombs, four expandable batons, an electric Taser, six plastic bottles containing explosives, foreign passport, four computers and mobile phones.

    It’s bitterly satisfying to see muslims the victims of their own doing.
    Perhaps now Mohamed VI will think about building less mosques and more schools.

      The psycho shows his true colors, all that so-called moralizing on other articles was nothing more than a cloak for you’re own demented mind.
      Webhiker meet self righteous indignation.

        Feel free to point out any inconsistencies in my views, rather than just creating fake little straw-men for empty assassination to support your delusional superiority. But good to know you spend time sweating over my posts trying to nit-pick pyrrhic victories every day.
        Back to the topic. If you play with shit, you start to smell like shit. This is a perfect example of why there is no such thing as moderate Islam. In fact there is no such thing as a terrorist, it’s a handy term invented to label violent civilians, somehow separating them from “regular” people. Sorry, no. These are your people, your communities, your religion. So to now see the terror in YOUR eyes is refreshing, to say the least. It’s the fastest way to expose Islam for what it really is. Just like the paedophiles brought down the catholic church.

          Do not delude yourself, thinking that I “sweat” over you’re childish and fallacious posts on this website. I come here often to keep informed on the happenings in my birth country, and without fail I find you’re comments here constantly moralizing and ranting.

          Also brush up on what a real straw man argument would look like, because my previous comment is not it. You webhiker indicated that you found the potential suffering and death of a certain group of people (in this case Moroccans, who may or may not be believing muslims) by an ISIS attack to be “satisfying” hence my use of the word psycho, as in exhibiting a psychotic disregard for the suffering of others. While you did also state that you “bitterly” found it “satisfying”, so this may also suggest that you simply wrote that comment for simple shock value. You than attempted to moralize by stating that the king should build more schools, which runs counter to the previous statement in which you found pleasure in the suffering of the very same people you now wanted a king to build schools for. So straw man argument? No. Accurate assessment of you’re comment? Yes.

          Now you attempt to justify this psychotic behavior, by making the case that regular self-professed muslims who number well over one billion people, are inseparable from your typical ISIS fighter or Taliban warlord. This collectivist false impression, conveniently ignores the entire concept of crisis of faith, crisis’s that are most strongly felt in the youth of nearly all muslim majority countries. it also pretends that individual interpretations no matter how divergent or theologically inconsistent do not exist. No two muslims believes the same way or in the same degree. Quite frankly most muslims do not know or understand a thing about their religion, all the negative gripes about Islam you or me can throw at an average muslim will be met with either denial, mental gymnastics or apologetic’s.

          So, far from most muslims simply accepting the most horrible aspects of the faith, they without fail attempt to explain it away or outright ignore it, this is a normal human reaction to having indoctrinated beliefs challenged. Fundamentalists on the other hand do embrace it and detest the apologists or the more respectable reformers because they see them as weak and or outright apostates. The irony is that while ISIS and other Islamist’s are more than happy to attack all those muslims or “moderates” who do not blindly accept the faith with fanaticism, since they see them as near apostates, people like you do the exact same thing. You deny individual human complexity in a sorry attempt to put peoples in neat little camps to make it easier to make psychotic generalizations.
