Morocco announced on Friday that a terrorist cell linked to ISIS had been dismantled. They were planning on attacks throughout the country it has been alleged.
The nine members of the dismantled cell were from across the country.
The interior ministry said the suspects were “at an advanced stage of preparing attacks on sensitive sites” in the country.
“The suspects have revealed that they had received instructions from Daesh (ISIS) to target sensitive sites in the kingdom with explosives,” the ministry announced.
Most of the arms and ammunition to be used in the attack were located in Kenitra, close to the capital of Rabat.
This is the latest blow to ISIS cells in Morocco as they have continuously been raised over the last few weeks.
