Eight children of Islamic State (ISIS) fighters who left the country to fight on behalf of the terrorist organization have been repatriated back to Australia.

“Media reported that they include five children and grandchildren of Sydney-born convicted terrorist Khaled Sharrouf and three children of Islamic State group fighter Yasin Rizvic, from Melbourne. Both men and their wives died in the conflict zone,” according to AP.

The children are now in the custody of the Australian government, according to Prime Minister Scott Morrison. The ISIS caliphate was recently destroyed by Western allied forces.

“The opportunity now is for these young children who are coming back to Australia, they can’t be held responsible for the crimes of their parents,” Morrison reportedly said.

“They’ve got off to a horrible start in life as a result of the appalling decisions of their parents and they’ll find their home in Australia and I’m sure they’ll be embraced by Australians and as a result of that embrace, I’m sure they’ll live positive and happy lives,” he continued.

The news comes amid a domestic terror threat in the United States from an ISIS-linked jihadi, whose plot to blow up a Pittsburgh church was derailed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Big League Politics reported:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation Wednesday morning arrested a Syrian refugee who planned to blow up a Pittsburgh church on behalf of the Islamic State.

“Mustafa Mousab Alowemer, 21, who came to the U.S. in 2016 and recently graduated from a city high school, was arrested Wednesday morning by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force,” according to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. 

A criminal complaint reportedly said that Alowemer wanted to support ISIS and inspire others to commit similar lone wolf style attacks.

“He is charged with one count of attempting to provide support to the Islamic State and two counts of distributing information relating to an explosive device in connection with the bomb plot,” the report said.
