Rabat – Moroccan authorities arrested on Thursday in Oujda three people- two Turkish nationals and their Moroccan accomplice- who are accused of engaging in terrorist activities.
“Oujda security services arrested on Thursday two Turkish nationals and their Moroccan accomplice involved in the hacking of a national telephone operator, using developed technical equipment,” said Friday a statement released by the Interior Ministry on Friday evening.
The investigation revealed that the two Turkish nationals are supporters of the so-called Islamic State organization. One of the two Turkish defendants had stayed in a camp in the countryside of Hama in Syria, where he followed a training in the use of light and heavy weapons, the same source added.
The two Turkish nationals have links with operational leaders of ISIS, who provided them with logistical support.
The three individuals will be brought to justice at the end of the ongoing investigation conducted under the supervision of the competent prosecutor.
Moroccan newspapers Assabah and Akhbar Al Youm reported on Friday that ISIS had issued warnings on social in which it threatened to carry out “devastating” attacks against Morocco. The threats come following the instrumental role Moroccan intelligence services played in thwarting other terrorist attacks in Paris.
