Los yihadistas detenidos preparaban una atentado en Catalunya Barcelona. (Redacción y agencias).- El conseller del Interior, Ramon Espadaler, ha concedido este miércoles la máxima importancia a la operación de los Mossos d'Esquadra que ha acabado con la detención de once presuntos yihadistas en varias localidades de Catalunya. Espadaler ha asegurado que los miembros de esta célula "completa y estructurada" estaban "abiertamente vinculados" a la organización del Estado Islámico y que además "tenían la voluntad explícita de atentar" en Catalunya. Además, el grupo se dedicaba a captar a jóvenes islamistas para radicalizarlos y enviarlos a combatir con el Estado Islámico en Siria e Iraq. Según el conseller, la voluntad de la célula de atentar en Catalunya se acreditó durante la investigación, por lo que hacía meses que la organización estaba monitorizada y controlada por la policía. En rueda de prensa, Espadaler ha detallado otros aspectos de la operación de los Mossos.
