November 7, 2023: Spainish General Information Commissioner's Office launched an operation that resulted in the destruction of a suspected terrorist network situated in Spain.
Spanish media reported that a total of 14 people were taken into custody across many provinces in Spain. According to reports, the inmates, who were all of Pakistani descent, were residents of Catalonia, Valencia, Guipúzcoa, Vitoria, Logroño, and Lleida.

The four alleged jihadists were apprehended by the national Police last month during a similar anti-terror operation, which precedes this arrests.
Four people were arrested for "proselytism and jihadist recruitment" in the Granada municipalities of Huetor-Tajar, Cubelles in Barcelona, and Madrid.

A married couple who had reportedly been brought together after joining one of these online social media groups was among those apprehended during the operation.
