Morocco: Anti-terror Forces Burst Three-man Cell Tasked to Install Emirate in the North of Kingdom
Morocco’s Bureau Central d’Investigations Judiciares (BCIJ,) dubbed Morocco’s FBI, Friday nabbed in the city of Nador a terror cell planning terrorist attacks and tasked to form an Emirate in the kingdom, reports say.
The terror cell made of three men, according to a statement by the interior ministry, received instructions to establish an Emirate in the north of the country.
They were also planning to launch a number of car bomb attacks against state institutions with logistical support to be received from the Islamic State group, the parent-organization, the statement further revealed.
Morocco has adopted a stringent strategy to ward off terror attacks including enhancement of its security and judicial apparatuses and succeeded to foil many attacks at home and to burst around 160 cells since 2002 and more than 32 over the past three years. Morocco also helped several foreign countries in their anti-terror struggle.
