Morocco’s security services, on Wednesday, arrested five extremists affiliated to the terrorist organization “Daech,” the Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations (BCIJ) said.
The arrests took place in the cities of Kenitra, Larache, Souk Sebt Ouled Nemma, Taroudant and the rural commune of Souihla (prefecture of Marrakech), the BCIJ added.
The searches have allowed the seizure of materials and electronic media, which will be subjected to technical and digital expertise to determine their content, the same source said, noting the confiscation of a set of manuscripts praising the terrorist organization Daech, including a manuscript containing the inventory of products and elements involved in the manufacture of explosives, in addition to knives of various sizes.
According to preliminary data from the investigation, the extremists also advocated physical liquidation and mutilation of corpses, in addition to extremist takfirist ideas of society and representatives of public authority and making “halal” the spoils of terrorist operations. They also planned physical liquidations against elements of public forces and government officials, in addition to targeting financial and banking institutions, in order to secure the resources and funding for terrorist operations.
