An American woman hailing from Kansas, who was reportedly the leader of a battalion of female ISIS fighters, has been officially charged with supporting the terrorist organization to go along with allegedly recruiting for a planned attack on an American college campus and training kids to use weapons and brainwash them into using suicide belts.
The woman in question, Allison Fluke-Ekren aged 42 and also known as Umm Mohammed al-Amrik, was first taken into custody in Syria shortly before the FBI took her into their control on the 28th of January and extradited her back to the United States for her trial on the charges of aiding the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, as revealed by recently unsealed court documents.
Standing as an American citizen, Fluke-Ekren is slated to be tried in the Eastern District of Virginia. She speaks English along with Arabic and first moved out to Egypt back in 2008 before moving once again to Libya in 2011.
“In or around 2012, Fluke-Ekren and others with whom she traveled were smuggled into Syria because, according to one witness, the terrorist organization Ansar al-Sharia was no longer conducting attacks in Libya, and Fluke-Ekren wished to engage in violent jihad,” read the recently unsealed court documents.
After 2014, officials think that Fluke-Ekren has been working alongside ISIS on quite a few terror-related projects. The mother of five allegedly tried to gather people in order to launch an attack on an American college and was the leader of the Khatiba Nusaybah, an all-female ISIS battalion.
“Fluke-Ekren’s alleged main objective in this role was to teach the women of ISIS how to defend themselves against ISIS’ enemies. According to another witness, ISIS allegedly mandated women who were staying in Raqqa during the 2017 siege to attend the training,” stated investigators.
Allegedly, she was the key factor in giving ISIS military training to well over 100 women and stated that they needed to work in order to grow the radical Islamist group’s territory and power. Back in 2018, Fluke-Ekren tried to persuade the U.S. government that she was dead, as a means to attempt to escape capture.
Her other terror-related activities included the translating of various speeches from ISIS leaders, the promotion of the indoctrination doctrine of ISIS, and training children in the use of suicide belts, rifles, and explosives. One of the children trained in such skills was her own, who, as one witness stated, was in possession of a machine gun at her house in Syria at the young age of five.
Also, the defendant allegedly spoke about how an attack at a mall in the U.S. could be carried out and how she thought that any attack on U.S. soil would be the most effective tactic that could be used.
“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. Fluke-Ekren allegedly considered any attack that did not kill a large number of individuals to be a waste of resources,” said officials with the Department of Justice.
If she is convicted of all of her charges, she is looking down the barrel of a mandatory 20-year prison sentence. U.S. Attorney Jessica Aber has put in the request that, for various safety concerns, that she be held in custody until such time as the trial.
