VILE: ISIS believed to have inspired the shocking murders

isisAN ISIS recruiting cell that was targeting children has been busted in Spain.

The Spanish Ministry of Internal Affairs said: “The group focused on capturing, indoctrinating and sending young people and children to conflict zones in Syria and Iraq to turn them into future fighters.”

Officials said the suspects, three men and a woman, had set up a ‘fully operational and permanent recruiting network in Ceuta, focusing on young candidates, including children’.

The ministry’s statement added: “This terrorist cell had established a constant, fluid and permanent channel of communication with Daesh [Arabic pejorative term for IS], fighters in Syria.”

Authorities in Spain have arrested 161 jihadists since 2015.

Some 45% of the jihadists arrested since 2013 had Spanish nationality.
