Spain said it arrested two suspected militants in its North African enclave of Ceuta, both accused of being part of a Takfiri cell planning an attack in the country.
Furthermore, the statement added that the arrests were connected to the detention of 4 others belonging to the same cell Jan. 24 and that two houses were being searched.
The case was being coordinated by the National Court in Madrid.
More to the point, Western nations had become increasingly worried about the risk of youths becoming radicalized by militants in North Africa and the Middle East and returning home to launch attacks.
The two suspects in Ceuta, on the Moroccan coast, were arrested under suspicion of using social media to recruit people to militant groups like "ISIL", the ministry declared.
A Moroccan woman who is a Spanish resident was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of attempting to join "ISIL" fighters in Syria.
