The Guardia Civil have arrested a young man in Costa Blanca’s San Vicente del Raspeig (Alicante) for allegedly spreading jihadist propaganda, created by Daesh, through video game platforms.
According to police sources, the detainee developed an intense use of editing and disseminating jihadi content on various internet platforms where chatrooms on weapons and online games stood out.
In his propaganda, he was showing a great affinity for the most violent of terrorist groups, Daesh, also known as ISIS. The terrorist sympathiser managed to infiltrate various forums as an admin and he broadcasted multimedia like videos and informative posters for the creation, use and handling of illegal weapons.
The detainee had also accumulated various police records, both from being at home and at school. Sources confirm that the detainee was also actively involved in the collaboration process of Jihadist terrorism but went by relatively unnoticed as he was mostly connected to this cell virtually from this comfort of his own home.
In terms of propaganda, the detainee would use violent video game platforms which allowed him to meet and contact younger individuals, some of the minors. Minors are excellent targets for this type of propaganda as they can be more easily swayed than adults.
