A Kansas woman was charged with providing material support to ISIS, according to charges unsealed by the Justice Department on Friday night.
On six separate occasions between 2014 and 2017, authorities say Allison Fluke-Ekren, 42, allegedly expressed interest in carrying out terrorist attacks in the United States in support of ISIS, the foreign terrorist organization that’s based in Iraq, Syria and other locations in Africa and the Middle East.
Fluke-Ekren moved to Syria in 2012 and married a “prominent” ISIS leader, court documents said. She can reportedly speak four languages, and the documents alleged she rose up the ranks to command her own battalion.
“Fluke-Ekren’s main objective in this role was to teach the women of ISIS how to defend themselves against ISIS’ enemies,” the complaint stated.
