He explained that the preliminary investigations revealed that the seized carried out several reconnaissance operations to monitor and identify the targets and sensitive facilities to be targeted, as they were seeking to gain experience in the manufacture of explosives and improvised explosive devices, in addition to their coordination with the aforementioned leader in ISIS to provide the necessary logistical resources and support to finance their sabotage projects. .
