The Central Bureau for Judicial Investigations (BCIJ) dismantled on Friday a pro-ISIS terror cell of eight people, who were operating in the northern city of Tangier, including the brother of two ISIS fighters in Syria and Iraq.

Initial investigations reveal that the suspects, aged between 20 and 31, adhered to ISIS propaganda and were trying to carry out terror attacks in Morocco, the BCIJ said in a statement.

This operation led to the seizure of electronic devices, bladed weapons, a small black ISIS flag, paramilitary uniforms and two bows.

The suspects will be brought to justice upon the completion of the investigation which is led under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor's office.

Investigations are still underway to arrest other people suspected of links with this terror cell, the BCIJ pointed out.
