Morocco dismantles terrorist cell affiliated to ‘Daesh’ operating in Tiznit and Sidi Slimane cities

A terrorist cell connected to the “Daesh” organization that was operating in the cities of Tiznit and Sidi Slimane was dismantled on Tuesday morning by the Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations (BCIJ) under the General Directorate of Territorial Surveillance (DGST) as part of ongoing efforts to combat the threats of violent extremism and counter terrorist threats to the safety of the Kingdom and the security of its citizens.

Four radicals, ages 22 to 44, were apprehended as a result of this extensive security operation conducted by members of the Rapid Intervention Brigade’s special force, according to a BCIJ statement.

The same source stated that during searches of the suspects’ homes, paramilitary gear including a balaclava, a tactical vest, a helmet, and a sight were found, along with extremist literature and a set of electronic media that will be examined by a digital specialist.

Initial investigations have revealed that the members of this terrorist cell have engaged in suspicious operations, with a view to mobilizing the financial resources and logistical support needed to carry out terrorist projects in the Kingdom with a view to undermining public order.

The suspects arrested in connection with this terrorist cell have been taken into custody to complete the preliminary investigation under the supervision of the prosecutor’s office in charge of terrorism cases to identify all their terrorist plans and projects, and elucidate the ramifications and possible links of this terrorist cell, which once again demonstrates the resurgence of terrorist threats, the statement concluded.
