A court on the Balearic island of Mallorca has jailed a Moroccan jihadist who called himself ‘Allah’s hitman’.

A 50-year-old Moroccan jihadist who called himself ‘Allah’s hitman’, was sent to prison by a judge in a court in the town of Campos on the Balearic island of Mallorca this Thursday, March 9. He had recently been found guilty of radicalising his messages and threats.

Through these accounts, he was seen to be constantly making threatening posts against any type of authority, police and military, calling himself a jihadist, mujahidin, and ‘Allah’s hitman’. The owner of these accounts was found to be a Moroccan male with no fixed address in Spain.
It turned out that he had been detected in recent years in different Spanish provinces, where he had been managing criminal profiles on social networks from his mobile device.

At the beginning of this year, he travelled to Egypt where he was arrested by the authorities of that country when he tried to travel to Sudan. That was when he was expelled to Spanish territory.

The pro-Daesh threats and propaganda that he shared on social networks among his numerous followers had multiplied in recent weeks. His messages had also become more radical in their nature.

In one of his last posts, he directly incited his followers to commit an attack against police officers, which subsequently led to his immediate arrest.

During his arrest, documentation, an electronic device, and a knife that he always carried with him were seized. He was made available to the courts today who decreed his entry into incommunicado prison, as reported by
