10 : 07 AM - 09/01/2018
Amman, Jan. 9 (BNA): Jordan's General Intelligence Department said it has foiled a massive terrorist scheme after it conducted an intensive and accurate follow-up operation and preemptive efforts.
The terrorist plot was planned by a Daesh-backed cell last November, according to Jordan News Agency (Petra).

The terrorist cell arranged to carry out a series of terrorist attacks synchronously aimed to tamper with national security and ignite havoc and intimidation of citizens.

The early intelligence follow-up endeavors led to the apprehension of 17 plotters involved in this heinous operation and seized rifles and other materials prepared to be used in the hideous plan, Petra reported.
