A statement from the Moroccan Ministry of Interior said that the Moroccan authorities have effectively dismantled a seven-person cell, headed by a teacher, that worked secretly in Morocco recruiting prospective Jihadists in order to send them to Syria and Iraq to fight for the radical Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
The Moroccan Ministry of Interior added that after that the local authorities conducted a preliminary investigation, they came up to the conclusion that the said cell was coordinating with field leaders, including a former Moroccan inmate sued for terrorism.
The ministry said that the cell was based in the cities of Fez, Outtat El Haj and Zayou, and that it has already recruited and dispatched several Moroccans to fight with ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
The same source added that the cell members were also planning terrorist attacks against people holding key positions in the Kingdom.
The cell elements were planning to use fake identities to carry out their terrorist actions.
