An 18-year-old on USA threatened and allegedly planned attack against Jews who stay in the country on his behalf ISISaccording to what has become known from the other side of the Atlantic.
Thus, the young man was arrested in New Jersey accused of threatening to kill Jews, a week after the FBI alerted about the threat to synagogues in that state.

In the FBI report on the 18-year-old, it is noted that on November 1 he sent a message from his mobile phone to a social networking platform, in which he wrote that he wanted to attack Jews on behalf of the Islamic State jihadist organization. In October, he also allegedly told another online group user that he wanted to kill Jews to avenge the deaths of Muslims in “Palestine, Syria, West Africa, South Asia.”

If convicted, the 18-year-old faces up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
