Waheba Issa Dais, 46, of Wisconsin, has pleaded guilty to one count of attempting to provide material support to Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), based upon her conduct in support of the terrorist organization in 2018.
According to admissions made in connection with her plea, Dais used hacked Facebook accounts in order to support ISIS.
She pledged her allegiance to ISIS on numerous occasions, and using these accounts, communicated with and encouraged other ISIS supporters who described their plans to conduct attacks, disseminated information about explosives and biological weapons, and attempted to recruit new members to ISIS’s cause.

Furthermore, Dais posted videos providing step-by-step instructions on how to make an explosive belt and TNT, and she provided a detailed recipe for the poison Ricin.
Dais also maintained encrypted social-media channels, where she posted messages encouraging ISIS supporters who could not travel to ISIS-controlled lands to conduct terrorist attacks in their home countries.
Through those encrypted channels, she also provided detailed information about explosives, guns, attack planning, and target selection.
