Minnesota man pleads guilty to supporting ISIS after joining on family trip

Abdelhamid Al-Madioum pleaded guilty to one count of providing support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

A St. Louis Park man has pleaded guilty to providing support to ISIS, a U.S. District Court judge announced Wednesday.

Abdelhamid Al-Madioum pleaded guilty to one county of providing support to a designated foreign terrorist organization after joining ISIS on a family trip in 2015.

According to court documents, Al-Madioum traved from St. Louis Park to Casablanca, Morocco in June 2015 to visit extended family.

From there, Al-Madioum traveled to Istanbul, Turkey, where members of ISIS helped him cross into Syria. Once in Syria, other ISIS members helped Al-Madioum get to Mosul, Iraq.

In Iraq, Al-Madioum enrolled in ISIS military training and joined the Tariq Bin-Ziyad Battalion of the Abu Mutaz al-Qurashi Division of ISIS, serving as a soldier until his injury in 2016. Al-Modioum still received a stipend until he surrendered to Syrian democratic forces in March 2019.

Al-Madioum returned to Minnesota in September. His sentencing is scheduled for May 26.
