Spanish police have broken up a jihadist cell intending to carry out attacks in Madrid, the interior ministry said in a statement Tuesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the ministry, three men arrested were “extremely radicalized and have completely assumed terrorist discipline and ideology,” as well as expressing a “full readiness to carry out an attack in the city of Madrid.”

The members of this cell actively used social networks according to the ministry, and were linked to Islamic State militants.

ISIL is a violent extremist group that seized large areas in Iraq and Syria in 2014 and is notorious for its many human rights atrocities. IS recruiters display propaganda through the use of social networking to persuade people, mainly youths, to join their ranks abroad or carry out attacks at home.

Spanish police regularly arrest people linked to the group.
