Four terror suspects arrested in joint operation in Ceuta and Morocco

AN ANTI-TERRORISM swoop staged by Spanish and Moroccan police has led to four arrests in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday).

Details of the suspects have not yet been revealed, other than to clarify that three of them are Spanish and one is Moroccan.

The first three were caught in the Spanish-owned city-province of Ceuta on the northern Moroccan coast, just across the water from Gibraltar and Algeciras (Cádiz), and the fourth in the nearby town of Nador over the border in Morocco itself.

They were said to be part of a recruitment cell involved in luring potential terrorists, indoctrinating and radicalising them before arranging for them to be sent to Syria and Iraq to join the so-called Islamic State, or ISIS, for combat training.

The gang was also said to be signing up already-trained Jihad fighters who were ready and prepared to carry out attacks in both countries in the name of ISIS, also known as DAESH by its initials in Arabic.

Investigations remain open and further arrests have not been ruled out.

All four are due to be transported to Madrid for trial in the National Court.
