Police in Spain arrested, Thursday, a 25-year-old man for his alleged links with ISIS. According to Spanish news agency Europa Press, the arrestee, who was wanted by an arrest warrant issued by Germany, is accused of «falsifying documents» and «tax fraud».

In 2016, police officers were investigating the ISIS-related group, which operated in Europe. The latter recruited new members for the organization to plan terror attacks, the agency said.

The members of this network had planned to carry out an attack in Paris on December 1, 2016, which did not take place thanks to the police, the same source added.

Investigators managed to identify three people from this network. They operated from Germany, provided logistical support, and forged documents to other suspected terrorists so that they could use them while traveling in Europe.

In 2017, the German authorities carried out an operation during which two members of the group were arrested, and the Moroccan, arrested this week, managed to flee Germany, hiding in several countries, including Spain.
