(PatriotWise.com)- A U.S. citizen has admitted guilt after being accused of helping the so-called Islamic State, often known as ISIS. More than 100 women and young girls who participated in an ISIS all-female brigade received military instruction from Allison Fluke-Ekren, it was revealed last week.
Fluke-Ekren was accused by the US Department of Justice of coordinating, leading, and commanding the would-be ISIS militants. ISIS attacked areas of Syria and Iraq from 2014 to 2020 after being named a foreign terrorist organization.
Fluke-Ekren, 42, formerly called Kansas her home. Around September 2008, she moved to Egypt with her ex-husband, who later joined ISIS and was martyred. At that time, she began traveling abroad.
Fluke-Ekren relocated to Benghazi, Libya, in September 2011, where he began carrying out terrorist acts. Fluke-Ekren visited the wrecked premises during the al Qaeda assault on the American diplomatic station and grabbed at least one box holding sensitive information. Later, she relocated to Syria and Iraq, actively backing ISIS.
According to a news release by the U.S. Department of Justice, Fluke-Ekren told a witness residing in Syria about her desire to perpetuate an assault in the United States.
Fluke-Ekren described how she could attack by traveling to a mall in the United States, putting a vehicle loaded with explosives in the basement or garage level of the building, then setting off the explosives in the car using a cell phone triggering device.
Fluke-Ekren said that she believed any attack that did not kill a significant number of people was a waste of precious resources. The Justice Department says that the American woman engaged in terrorism-related activities throughout the Levant, Middle East, and North Africa from September 2011 until May 2019. Fluke-Ekren would hear about external attacks happening in nations outside the United States and remark that she wished the attack had taken place on U.S. soil instead. Syria, Libya, and Iraq are just a few nations where Fluke-Ekren committed these atrocities.
The Khatiba Nusaybah was the group Fluke-Ekren oversaw. She taught the ladies how to use and maintain AK-47 weapons, grenades, and even suicide belts, in addition to small unit tactics and marksmanship. Some girls who participated in Fluke-military Ekren’s training were as young as ten.
The Justice Department continued, “Additionally, witnesses with first-hand knowledge stated that the Khatiba Nusaybah also provided some members with instruction on physical training including martial arts, medical training, VBIED [vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices] driving courses, ISIS religious classes, and how to pack and prep a ‘go bag’ with rifles and other military supplies.
