SEVEN arrests of possible DAESH, or ISIS members have been made this morning (Sunday) in the provinces of Alicante and Valencia and in the Spanish-owned city-province of Ceuta on the northern Moroccan coast.

Four of the accused parties are Spanish nationals, but originally Jordanian, Syrian and Moroccan, and two others are Moroccan and Syrian citizens resident in Spain, but the seventh suspect's nationality has not yet been revealed.

National Police are searching a number of homes in the province of Alicante and further arrests may be reported imminently.

The investigation has been ongoing for nearly two years, and has allowed authorities to break up a satellite cell of the terrorist organisations Jabhat al-Nusra (JaN) and DAESH, or the so-called Islamic State, based in Syria and Iraq.

Police say the seven had been in charge of supplying logistical material necessary for supporting terrorist activity.
