DUHOK – The U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday that a Pennsylvania teenager was indicted for aiding the radical group of Islamic State (ISIS).
According to investigators, the young jihadist has helped individuals travel to the Middle East to join the Islamic State terror group.
The Justice Department said in a statement that Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz, 19, of Harrisburg in Pennsylvania, was indicted by a federal jury in Scranton on charges of “conspiring and attempting to provide material support” to the radical group.
Aziz, who was arrested on Thursday, had reportedly used over 57 Twitter accounts to call for and plan terror attacks in the United States.
According to prosecutors, the radicalized young man has been supporting ISIS propaganda through social media. Aziz has posted a list of names of U.S. military officials, saying those have to be targeted by pro-ISIS jihadists.
