An alleged ISIS terrorist from neighboring Morocco has been jailed after revealing plans to carry out an attack at a busy Costa del Sol feria.

The suspect, named Anwar Andalosi on social media, was arrested in Manilva on Tuesday after planning to carry out attacks at the town’s annual summer fair.

Investigators discovered that the 27-year-old from Morocco, known as M.L., had announced his plans in a video sent to Syrian jihadists in August. He is currently being held without bail ahead of his trial. Officials said he recorded a video at Manilva fair in August 2018, stating that it was his chosen place to plant a bomb.

The want to be terrorist stated that death did not scare him as he wanted to die a martyr.

He had downloaded and searched for a ‘large amount’ of videos produced by Daesh on the dark web. Many of them featured sick footage of jihadists carrying out murders and being sworn into the terrorist organization.
