    (ANSAmed) - MADRID, MARCH 13 - Eight members of an alleged jihadist cell were arrested on Friday morning in Spain's Catalan provinces including Barcelona, Girona, Ciudad Real and Avila in anti-terrorist operation conducted by Spanish National Police, Spain's Interior Ministry reported.

    According to reports, those arrested were planning attacks in Spain and were recruiting fighters for ISIS to be sent to Iraq and Syria through contacts provided by the terrorist organization.

    The suspects were arrested a few hours following the verification of two suspected jihadists detained in Ceuta on Tuesday who, according to the indictment, were preparing to begin attacks in Spain. Both were charged with membership in a terrorist organization and illegal weapons possession.

    Investigations are on-going and the operation, coordinated by Spanish High Court Judge Javier Gomez Bermudez, is still open.(ANSAmed).
