THE head of a suspected Mallorca ISIS cell had called for an Islamic caliphate to be established on the island.

Tarik Chadlioui, 43, was arrested in London after a joint operation between Spanish, German and UK police on Wednesday which saw four suspected jihadists held in Mallorca.

TERROR: Suspected ISIS hate preacher thought to have radicalised Mallorca group

The Imam, who was detained in Birmingham, was photographed outside Palma Cathedral in 2014.

Four other suspected ISIS members were arrested in Mallorca and another in Germany in the dawn raid.

In one image posted on Facebook, Chadlioui declares ‘an Islamic state will return to Mallorca’.

In other recordings, he can be seen spouting ISIS propaganda in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains.

He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court before extradition proceedings against him start.

Spanish police swooped on addresses in Inca, Ariany and Binissalem in the early hours of Wednesday morning to apprehend the four men.

Chadlioui is suspected of having travelled twice to Palma to held radicalise others.

He is also suspected of having helped raise funds for ISIS’s brutal terror campaign in Syria.

It comes a few weeks after it was reported over 100 SAS-trained security guards had been hired by tour operators to guard Spanish beaches popular with Brits.

  1. 100 SAS-trained security guards?
    But they have no juridiction is Spain.
    And if you take in account their records, well….they are not the most efficient, no?
    On the other hand you have the Guardia Civil, with more than 500 jihadists arrested and 200 deported, and zero terrorist attack since 2004.
