TEN people linked to the Islamic State in Spain and Morocco have been arrested in an internationally coordinated operation which took place on Sunday October 4
The Spanish National Police in conjunction with the DGST (Moroccan counter-subversion unit) raided locations in Toledo, Badalona, Xeraco (Valencia) and Casablanca (Morocco) and have detained 10 people associated with the Islamic State, who are allegedly part of a recruitment network for terrorists involved in indoctrination and the sending of recruits from Europe.
According to the Spanish Interior Ministry, “the detainees were part of a network of recruitment, tasked with indoctrination and the sending of foreign fighters to join the ranks of the terrorist organization DAESH, on the Syrian-Iraqi region which remains under its control”.
“The operation was ordered by the Office of the High Court No. 5 in Spain as part of an ongoing investigation.” The Ministry said.
