Philadelphia, PA – A Philadelphia woman who admitted to plotting to travel to Syria to aid the Islamic State group is scheduled to be sentenced today in federal court.

Keonna Thomas pleaded guilty last year to one count of attempting to provide material support to a terrorist organization.

Authorities say Thomas called herself Fatayat Al Khilafah and “YoungLioness” as she sought to raise money online, and once told an Islamic State group fighter that taking part in a martyrdom operation “would be amazing.”
