Jordan Foiled ISIS Attack Plot, Arrested 17

Jordan had reportedly foiled a series of ISIS attacks on security installations, shopping malls and moderate religious figures last November.

State news agency Petra said on Monday the country’s intelligence department had arrested 17 members of the cell and confiscated weapons and explosives that the terrorist group had planned to use in the operation, Reuters reported.

The statement said the cell had waged a series of bank robberies and car thefts to get financing, and manufactured homemade explosives from material bought from local markets.
