ISIS AMONG US: Former Indiana Resident Charged with ‘SUPPORTING’ the Islamic State

Originally published at:

A former Indiana resident was charged with supporting the Islamic State Thursday, with Department of Justice officials confirming the woman aided the terror network between 2014 and 2015.

According to the Washington Examiner, Samantha Elhassani was charged with “conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State and helping provide material support to the terrorist organization.”

“My office is committed to aggressively pursuing and prosecuting those who support designated terrorist organizations such as ISIS,” said U.S. Attorney Thomas Kirsch. “This indictment is an example of that commitment. The indictment alleges that Elhassani traveled abroad and provided funds and supplies for use by two ISIS fighters. The seriousness of the charges reflect the gravity of Elhassani’s alleged conduct.”

“The charges against Ms. Elhassani illustrate that actions of providing support to ISIS have serious consequences, and should serve as a reminder to American citizens that providing assistance to terrorist organizations or individuals aligned with terrorist entities will not be tolerated,” added the FBI.
