Youssef Uweinat is a Sydney tradesman accused of being affiliated with Islamic State and plotting terror attacks on home soil.
He was arrested at his family home by counter-terrorism police who had been probing him for six months. Uweinat was charged with planning terrorist acts, advocating terrorism and being a member of a terrorist organisation.
He reportedly shared graphic war scene videos and downloaded a guide on how to attack people with knives and other weapons just hours before his dramatic arrest.
In the caption below the video he wrote: “While you spend the nights clubbing and drinking, trying to be cool infront (sic) of your mates, your brothers and sisters are spending there (sic) nights being burnt alive and being bombed. Where are the lions who will stand up and defend their religion?”.
Australian Federal Police assistant commissioner Ian McCartney said Uweinat’s activity was exclusively online.
Uweinat is charged with three terrorism offences including planning for terrorist acts, membership of a terrorist organisation, and advocating terrorism.
