A Man From Ohio Who Attempted to Join Isis Was Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison.

Thursday, Feb. 1 (UPI) — On Wednesday, a federal judge in Ohio handed down a 10-year prison sentence to a man for his attempt to join the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

The Justice Department has confirmed that after serving his prison time, Naser Almadaoji will be subject to 15 years of supervised release.

The 23-year-old U.S. citizen of Iraqi descent pled guilty to trying to provide material support to foreign terrorist organisations in 2021.

In 2018, Almadaoji purchased a flight to Kazakhstan, but he was arrested at John Glenn International Airport in Columbus, Ohio by members of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.

He later confessed to authorities that he had planned to sneak into Afghanistan to join the Islamic State, where he would have received military training in areas such as bomb making, kidnapping high-value targets, and home invasion.

When he eventually came back to the United States, he planned to start a war between the federal government and anti-government militias.

Almadaoji attempted to join an offshoot of Islamic State in the Sinai Peninsula earlier this year by first visiting Jordan and then Egypt. He gave up and went back to the States empty-handed.

The following day, Almadaoji made a video in which he pledged allegiance to ISIS while wearing a headscarf and told a man he believed to be an ISIS member that he was interested in helping with “projects” in the United States.
