The FBI arrested on Wednesday, Waheba Issa Dais in her home in Wisconsin for supporting Daesh terrorist group.

FBI arrested a Wisconsin resident for providing support to the Daesh terror group by facilitating recruitment and helping plot terror attacks via Facebook.

US Department of Justice said, Waheba Issa Dais, born in Israel, was arrested in her home in Wisconsin’s Cudahy for attempting to provide material support or resources to the terrorist group.

According to the media, the FBI was tipped off by Facebook officials who said Dais posted instructions on how to make explosives on her social media.

Later on Wednesday, the woman appeared before a federal magistrate judge and now faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Social media has turned into a platform for a range of extremist and terrorist groups, including Daesh, which has been actively using Facebook, Twitter, and Telegram to attract new recruits.
