Jordanian Interior Minister Sameer al-Mobaideen said on Monday that those detained during raids in al-Salt, a hillside town near the capital Amman, have a takfirist ideology.
During a press conference with Minister of State for Media Affairs and government spokesperson Jumana Ghunaimat, Mobaideen said three terrorists were killed and others were detained during the al-Salt raid, west of Amman.
He also said that the operation revealed that there were other terror schemes to attack security posts, adding that security forces found explosives which the terror cell had hidden in al-Salt.
Mobaideen also commended security forces for their professionalism in al-Salt as they’ve finalized the operation in less than 12 hours.
Commenting on the terrorists’ ideology, Ghunaimat said: “We must develop our strategy to combat extremism.”
She noted that circulating fake news and inaccurate names confused the flow of the operation.
Ghunaimat added that they kept the media up to date about the developments of As-Salt operation.
