The arrest has taken place thanks to an International Order of Detention for the purpose of extradition issued by Morocco and with the collaboration of the Directorate General of the Surveillance du Territoire (DGST) and the National Intelligence Center. The Provincial Information Brigade of Barcelona has also collaborated.
The detainee left in May 2014 his native country, Morocco, to move to a conflict zone, where he allegedly planned the development of a long-range missile base of the terrorist organization.
Investigations have revealed that the detainee had entered Spanish soil in June of this year, after having returned from Syria through Turkey, Germany and Ukraine, among other countries.
The alleged jihadist fighter circulated in Europe without any documentation, following the usual practice of destroying passports and identity cards to avoid being identified by the security forces.
