“Anyone who threatens our citizens and our allies, here or abroad, will face the full force of American justice,” said Loretta E. Lynch, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. “We will vigorously prosecute those who attempt to travel to Syria to wage violent jihad on behalf of ISIL and those who support them.” Saidakhmetov was arrested at JFK IKnternational after attempting to board a flight to Turkey. It was known that if told to do so by the ISIL organization, he was willing to perform an act of terrorism on United States’ soil. Juraboev was planning to leave the U.S. next month, but not after purchasing machine guns he’d planned to us to kill police, FBI agents and the President, while Habibov supported the two with encouragement and finances for the tickets out of the country.
