A Kansas woman accused of leading an “all-female” ISIS Battalion has been arrested by the FBI.
“An American woman, formerly of Kansas, is accused of leading an all-female ISIS battalion in Syria and plotting a ‘potential future attack’ at a U.S. college campus,” Breitbart News reported.
“U.S. citizen Allison Fluke-Ekren, 42, was previously apprehended in Syria and turned over to FBI custody on Friday, a Saturday release from the Justice Department states. Fluke-Ekren, who goes by many different aliases, is charged with ‘providing and conspiring to provide material support to ISIS, a designated foreign terrorist organization,’ and faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted,” according to Breitbart News.
“A release cites a recently unsealed criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in 2019, alleging that since Fluke-Ekren left the states for Syria, she partook in numerous terrorism-related activities dating back to at least 2014,” reports Breitbart News.
The release states:
These activities allegedly include, but are not limited to, planning and recruiting operatives for a potential future attack on a college campus inside the United States and serving as the appointed leader and organizer of an ISIS military battalion, known as the Khatiba Nusaybah, in order to train women on the use of automatic firing AK-47 assault rifles, grenades and suicide belts. Additionally, Fluke-Ekren allegedly provided ISIS and ISIS members with services, which included providing lodging, translating speeches made by ISIS leaders, training children on the use of AK-47 assault rifles and suicide belts and teaching extremist ISIS doctrine.
The release further states that she wanted to carry out an attack in the United States:
To conduct the attack, Fluke-Ekren allegedly explained that she could go to a shopping mall in the United States, park a vehicle full of explosives in the basement or parking garage level of the structure, and detonate the explosives in the vehicle with a cell phone triggering device.
