Spanish security sources disclosed that during the hearing at the National Court in Madrid on Monday, new information emerged which indicates the involvement of Moroccan jihadists in recruiting and sending militants to the battlefront in Syria to fight in the ranks of ISIS.
According to the source, a group of Moroccan jihadists has been accused of belonging to a terror cell operating between Morocco and Spain.
The cell was dismantled in 2014, while working to dispatch Moroccan jihadists to Syria and Iraq, and to raise funds at a mosque in Madrid to finance the recruitment efforts on behalf of ISIS.
