Madrid – Morocco is conducting a “very effective fight” against jihadist terrorism, Spanish daily ABC pointed out on Thursday.
Growing fundamentalism in several Maghreb countries is a “major threat” particularly for the countries in Southern Europe, the newspaper noted, adding that Morocco is leading a “very effective” fight against jihadist terrorism.
The Spanish daily reported the statement released Wednesday by Moroccan Interior ministry, which stresses efforts made by this department in counter-terrorism.
Since 2002, 159 terrorist cells have been dismantled, including 38 since 2013, which had close ties with terrorist groups that are active in Iraq and Syria, including ISIS, the Interior ministry pointed out.
