This operation, which is part of the cooperation between the Moroccan and Spanish security services in a context marked by the persistence of threats by the so-called "Islamic State" organization against the stability of the Kingdom and its allies, allowed the arrest of three individuals who are active in the city of Fnideq, in conjunction with the arrest of two other people in Bilbao (Spain), holders of Moroccan and Senegalese nationalities, the ministry said in a statement.

The searches also led to the seizure of knives in the form of large cutlery and military clothing, in addition to electronic equipment, said the same source, adding that according to early elements of the investigation, members of this cell, who were in contact with fighters on the Syrian-Iraqi soil, have joined campaigns of propaganda for extremist thought and advocacy of the Daech group's bloodthirsty actions and worked to recruit young people in both countries to commit terrorist acts under the banner of this organization.

This operation confirms the continuation of terrorist threats in the midst of the determination of supporters of Daech's extremist thinking to commit terror acts in different regions of the world, stressed the Interior ministry.

The suspects will be brought to justice once the investigation is completed under the supervision of the competent prosecutor.
