The 3 men, arrested today by FBI agents, discussed launching terror attacks in the U.S. if they were unable to join ISIS overseas
NEW YORK – FBI agents in Brooklyn have arrested three men for allegedly attempting to travel abroad to join the terror group ISIS.
The trio had discussed launching attacks domestically if they were unable to travel to join them, authorities said.
Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev, Akhror Saidakhmetov and Abror Habibov face charges of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.
Back in the summer of 2014, Juraboev, 24, and Saidakhmetov, 19, had expressed support online for the establishment of an Islamic caliphate in Iraq in Syria, authorities said.
They had devised a plan to travel to Turkey and then Syria to wage jihad, authorities said.
Saidakhmetov was arrested early Wednesday morning at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he was about to board a flight to Istanbul.
Saidakhmetov allegedly plotted to buy a machine gun and kill police officers and FBI agents if he was unable to join ISIS in Syria, authorities said.
