Moroccan security services dismantle multiple terror cells

Published on

Since the beginning of the year, Moroccan security services have dismantled four terrorist cells operating in different cities, proving that the kingdom is the target of such threats.

This means that Morocco has been able to face various threats by developing its strategy of monitoring terrorist networks at the national and international level, and strengthen its vigilance to fight terrorism and ensure the security and stability of the kingdom.

In detail, the security services dismantled, on 2 March 2020, a terrorist cell operating in the city of Sidi Slimane, which is situated some 116 kilometres north of Rabat, and composed of four elements supporting the group called Islamic State.  On 7 July 2020, a terrorist cell, composed of four members, active in Nador and its environs was dismantled. On 10 September 2020, Moroccan security services dismantled another terrorist cell linked to the Islamic State, and aborted its imminent and complex plans with links in several cities in the kingdom.

These security operations, carried out simultaneously in the cities of Tangier, Tiflet, Témara and Skhirat, resulted in the arrest of five extremists. Most recently, on 5 October 2020, a terrorist cell affiliated with Daech, active in the city of Tangier and composed of four individuals, was also dismantled.

In 2019, the security services dismantled 12 terrorist cells operating in different Moroccan cities.
