The Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations (BCIJ) dismantled on Tuesday, December the 11th, a terrorist cell composed of three individuals who have alleged links with ISIS, and who operate in the city of Kenitra, said a communiqué issued by the Interior Ministry and sent to Yabiladi.

According to the first elements of the investigation, the suspects, aged between 21 and 31 years old, were arrested on charges of apologizing for terrorism and praising ISIS’ propaganda. They were planning to carry out terror acts in the Kingdom, following the destructive agenda of the terrorist group, said the same source.

One of the arrestees tried to join ISIS in Syria and Iraq, before deciding to commit a major terrorist act in Morocco. The same person was close to another extremist who was arrested on November the 9th in Ait Melloul.

The three people will be brought to justice at the end of the investigation, concluded the same statement.
