A SPANISH woman who was planning to travel to Syria with her four children to join Daesh has been arrested in Alicante.
The 36-year-old woman was scheduled to travel until she learned that her husband, allegedly a high-ranking Daesh member, had died.
The woman went through all the necessary procedures to move with her four minor children to a conflict zone.
Her intention was to meet with her husband in Syria who travelled to join Daesh in 2014.
In order to do so, she even denounced the fictional disappearance of her husband and father of the children, even though she knew that he was fighting in a conflict zone, in order to obtain the absolute parental authority of her children.
Faced with the impossibility of travelling by air from Spain, she planned to go via France, but finally gave up after the news of the death of her husband.
Investigators discovered that she carried out propaganda through social networks, using aggressive slogans, jihadist emblems, and published videos of her own that were extremely violent.
Since 2015, when the Ministry of the Interior raised the Anti-Terrorism Alert Level to 4, the security forces have detained a total of 190 jihadist terrorists.
Through the STOP RADICALISMOS initiative, the public can notify security forces in a confidential and secure way via the website www.stop-radicalismos.es, the Alertcops mobile app and the free telephone number 900 822 066.
