Suspected jihadist arrested in anti-terrorist operation in Malaga last week has been jailed

It has been reported that Ismael Moreno, the chief judge of the National Court in Malaga, sentenced one of the jihadists arrested last Friday, October 22, to prison. According to judicial sources of, the man was jailed for jihadist indoctrination to another one of those arrested in last Friday’s operation in the Malaga district of Lagunillas.
The Guardia Civil reported that this detainee had been monitored since 2020 for his pro-jihadist activity on the internet. They stressed that was clearly suffering from a “deep process of radicalisation”, which was visible in many posts made on his social networks. He was also known to have links with radical environments of Melilla.

“The subject of audiovisual content was focused on multiple infographics extolling the jihadist cause, and the figure of terrorists convicted or prosecuted as well as symbols of the terrorist organization Daesh”, explained a Guardia Civil spokesperson.
In recent weeks these publications had apparently increased, with multiple content invoking war and violence. Some of the videos he posted even featured the detainee introducing other elements of great terrorist significance.
The two arrests came as a result of an operation involving the Guardia Civil’s Rapid Action Group in the area of ​​Victoria and Lagunillas in the west of the capital last Friday 22. This operation was reportedly carried out at the request of the National Court.
