Mauritanian authorities continued to besiege the Muslim
Brotherhood in the West African country, where police arrested Mahfouz Ould Ibrahim, director of the so-called "Scholars Formation Center", the largest center of
the Muslim Brotherhood in the country.
Ibrahim's arrest comes as part of the Mauritanian government's plan to ban the political activities of the terrorist group hiding behind the National Rally for Reform and Development Party.
On Monday, Mauritanian police assumed control of the Scholars Formation Center, headed by Mohamed El-Hassan al-Daddo, who leads the terrorist group in Mauritania.
Daddo is currently in Turkey. Some sources say he has decided to stay abroad for fear of being arrested, while only sending voice messages and videos to his supporters.
Last Wednesday, the Mauritanian authorities shut down Ibn Yacin University, which is also run by Daddo and is a stronghold of the terrorist group to spread its extremist ideas and produce generations of terrorists using religious slogans as cover for their actions.
Last Thursday, Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz said that the Muslim Brotherhood "had destroyed Arab societies" and that it was "far from Islam."
