BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:25 P.M.) – Moroccan security forces arrested 11 people suspected of having ties to Islamic State in Fez on Saturday.

The suspects, who are reportedly part of an “extremely dangerous” terrorist cell, were arrested during a raid that led to the discovery of weapons, ammunition, chemicals, gas canisters and knives.

The Moroccan Interior Ministry stated that the cell members were active in cities such as Khouribga, Casablanca, Meknes and Fez, and they planned to carry out attacks in “sensitive areas.”

Among the eleven arrested was the suspected mastermind of the cell and an accomplice.
