A Brisbane man has faced court accused of giving video editing software to a relative who went to work for a media unit of the so-called Islamic State terror group in a conflict zone.

Alaa Adam Atwani, 27, faced Richlands Magistrates Court on Wednesday after being charged with attempting to provide support to a terrorist organisation.

Police allege Atwani provided Sony Vegas video-editing software to a relative who had travelled to a conflict zone – and was working for the media unit of the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

He committed the alleged offence at a unit in Sydney suburb Punchbowl between October and November 2014, court documents state.

It is alleged he knew he was helping a terrorist organisation.

Atwani was arrested as part of a joint AFP-Queensland police investigation into Australians suspected of “being members of a terrorist organisation in Syria and Iraq, as well as people in Australia suspected of providing assistance to terrorist organisations”.
