Morocco Busts Nationwide Terrorist Group

JewishPress Logo

Moroccan officials said they have arrested more than 50 suspects in a bust on a nationwide “terrorist cell” that operated in 50 cities. The suspects included those “who have trained with terrorist organizations in the handling of various weapons and explosives,” Morocco’s interior ministry stated.

One of those arrested formerly had been held on charges of terrorism and now is accused of raising money and recruiting terrorists, many of whom were trained to use rifles and explosives.

The members of the terror camel were arrested after returning from Syria, according to a lawyer for Salafists who also was taken into custody.

Al Qaeda released a video in September calling for jihad in Morocco, which is an ally of France and the United States.

    yest, Morrocco focused on anti_israel measures that brought them revenue and peace from Israel and the Jews worldwide.
    Time for Arab leaders to decide: what is good for their citizens versus bending over as contortionists to the gazans who do not care about Morrocco other than their hskaedown money and drug outlets for sales to the west.
