New Jersey Man Arrested for Ties to ISIS

A 20-year old man from Bergen County has been arrested on charges of aiding ISIS. Nader Saadeh was arrested in Jordan on Monday morning upon arriving and was held there until being brought back to the U.S. to face charges. His 23-year old brother Alaa Saadeh has been in custody on the same charge since June. The two brothers are part of a group of five that were tied to the same investigation by the FBI. As part of the investigation federal officials monitored social media sites such as FaceBook and Twitter and found that many expressed interest in getting to Middle East. The investigation also found that Naader Saadeh began to use his computer much less, and turned to cell phone communication. An informant found that Saadeh became a radical supporter of ISIS and thought that recent attacks including the murder of Charlie Hedbo employees were justified. Over the past year fifty-eight people have been arrested from coast-to-coast on allegedly supporting or having some sort of ties to the terror group, many of the people arrested have been in their twenties. Saadeh is currently being held without bail, and will likely not be granted bail because he is a security and flight risk. Saadeh faces up to twenty years in prison and fines of $250,000 if convicted.
