A US resident who had gone to Syria to join ISIS and was later caught on the combat zone “confessed Wednesday to plotting to offer material help to psychological oppression,” as per an announcement from the Office of the U.S. Lawyer for the Northern District of Texas.
“Omer Kuzu – a 23-year-old U.S. resident caught by the Syrian Democratic Forces and came back to the U.S. by the FBI following a five-year spell dealing with correspondences for ISIS – conceded Wednesday to plotting to offer material help to illegal intimidation,” the announcement stated, saying that Kuzu could look as long as 20 years in jail.
“This litigant, an American resident radicalized on American soil, swore loyalty to a severe psychological militant gathering and traversed the world to sanction its plan,” US Attorney Erin Nealy Cox said in the announcement.
As a component of the request arrangement, Kuzu, presently 25, conceded that he and his sibling, Yusuf, withdrew Texas for Istanbul, Turkey in 2014 and were then pirated over the fringe into Syria by an ISIS carrying system, in the end advancing toward Mosul, Iraq, which was under ISIS control at that point.
After essential physical and weapons preparing, they were then sent to Raqqah, Syria, the then accepted capital of the ISIS caliphate, where Kuzu “began work at the ISIS media communications directorate.”
Kuzu conceded he promised loyalty to the now expired ISIS pioneer Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his fear association.
“He was given a month to month allowance, a Chinese-made AK-47, and took an ISIS lady of the hour,” as indicated by the announcement from the US Attorney’s Office.
Kuzu was entrusted with giving correspondences backing to ISIS contenders on the cutting edges. He was caught by the US-sponsored and Kurdish-drove Syrian Democratic Forces in 2019, close by 1,500 speculated ISIS contenders.
He was localized to the US soon thereafter.His condemning is set for January 22, 2021.The destiny of his sibling Yusuf Kuzu is muddled yet he has not been arraigned.
The US government has since quite a while ago tried to urge nations to localize their residents who have been caught battling for ISIS and the Department of Justice has had the option to charge a few American residents for their supposed association with the fear gathering.
Nonetheless, the push to get different nations to localize their residents from where they’re being held in detainment camps worked by the Syrian Democratic Forces has had restricted accomplishment to date, with just a modest bunch of nations having openly localized their contenders.
Numerous nations are hesitant to localize their warriors in view of the trouble of indicting suspected ISIS individuals dependent on proof gathered on the front line.
