Manhattan federal court revealed the name of an Orange County college student, 24-year-old Samy El-Goarany, who was recently killed in Syria fighting for ISIS. In January 2015, El-Goarany was living with his parents in Goshen. He then flew to Turkey and on to Syria. The Daily News said the man who facilitated El-Goarany’s travel was Ahmed Mohammed el-Gammal who was taken into custody August 2015 for conspiring to provide support to ISIS.
