Morocco's Battle Against Islamic Jihadi Terrorism

(Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs) Col. (ret.) Dr. Jacques Neriah - Jihadist terrorist cells in Morocco are not only a real threat to the stability of the kingdom, but also a significant provider of manpower to radical Islamic movements in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. A May 16, 2003, terrorist attack in Casablanca killed more than 45. Since then, Morocco has adopted a ruthless and merciless war against jihadist organizations.
