A South Carolina teenager has been arrested on charges that he attempted to provide material support to the barbaric Islamic group ISIS, which identifies itself as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.  Zakaryia Abdin, 18, of Ladson was arrested on Thursday by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) as he was about to board a plane overseas to allegedly join ISIS. According to the Charlotte Observer,

police had previously warned a juvenile parole board that the teen posed a threat after he made statements that he wanted to kill police and military members. Abdin had been arrested in 2015 over a plot to rob a gun store and use the stolen weapons to attack a military base. He was also found with an ISIS flag and other material that linked him to the organization. Abdin was sentenced to five years in a juvenile facility on gun—not terrorism—charges. MORE
