Rabat – Morocco’s security services dismantled this Monday a five-member terror cell related to the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).
The suspects, who were operating in the southern city of Smara and the regions of Belfaa and Ait Amira, were planning to join ISIS in Syria and Iraq before deciding to join the organization in Libya through Mauritania with the help of traffickers in the region, the Interior Ministry pointed out in a statement.
According to investigations, the cell intended to declare “Jihad” in the Kingdom and one of its members was preparing a pressure cooker bomb to carry out a terrorist operation targeting public places, the source said.
The suspects will be brought before justice after the completion of investigations conducted under the competent public prosecutor’s office.
