Morocco arrests five Daesh-affiliated extremists

The Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ) announced, this Wednesday, March 16, 2022, the arrest of five extremist supporters of Daesh, for alleged involvement in the planning and preparation of destructive projects within the framework of individual terrorism operations.

The defendants were arrested in separate and simultaneous security operations in Kenitra, Larache, Souk sebt ouled nemma, Taroudant and the rural commune Souihla (Marrakech).

The searches carried out in the homes of the defendants led to the seizure of electronic equipment and media, in addition to manuscripts praising Daesh and knives of different sizes.

According to preliminary data from the investigation, the five extremists are involved in the incitement and preparation of terrorist projects as they have started collecting extremist content on the manufacture of explosive devices.

The suspects have set terrorist objectives specific to each of them and which all overlap in the method and techniques of individual terrorism.

These contents praise the style of physical liquidation and desecration of corpses adopted by Daesh, in addition to the adoption of extremist ideas on the takfirism of society and representatives of public authorities and make “halal” the spoils from operations.
