An Australian man has been arrested for allegedly researching how to develop laser targeted missile detection equipment for ISIS, as well as working to help develop a long-range capable missile for the Islamic extremists.
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) arrested 42-year-old Haisem Zahab on Tuesday at his family home in rural New South Wales, Australia. The electrician had been providing advice to ISIS militants over the internet intended to help them develop an early warning device that would indicate when ISIS strongholds were being targeted by laser guided weapon systems. He had also been putting his expertise to use in aiding in ISIS’ efforts to develop medium and long-range ballistic missiles intended to help extend the reach of the group’s violent efforts.
