Fatima Elomar, the wife of Australian Islamic State group terrorist, Mohamed Elomar, pleaded guilty Monday to supporting her husband in his fight against the West. Mohamed is reportedly believed to have been killed while fighting alongside ISIS in June.
Fatima briefly appeared at Sydney's Downing Centre District Court on Monday, according to reports. The 31-year-old was intercepted at Sydney Airport in May last year during an attempt to board an international flight with her children, BBC reported. Counterterrorism police reportedly said that she was carrying cash, camouflage equipment and medical supplies at the time.
According to BBC, court documents revealed text messages exchanged between Fatima and her husband, in which she pleaded him to return home for medical treatment after being shot. Mohamed reportedly told his wife to prepare their children's passports so they could travel to the Syrian city of Raqqa, an ISIS stronghold.
Mohamed, along with Australian ISIS recruit Khaled Sharrouf, gained public attention last year after they posted pictures of themselves posing with severed heads on social media, according to BBC. According to reports, one of the images was also of Sharrouf's seven-year-old son holding up a severed head of a Syrian soldier.
Sharrouf and Mohammed traveled to Syria and then to Iraq in 2013, with Sharrouf using his brother's passport to leave Australia.
According to the Australian government, more than 100 Australians are fighting alongside ISIS in Iraq and Syria, while another 150 citizens are believed to be supporting the militant group from within the country.
