Miami, July 27 – Tayyab Tahir Ismail today pleaded guilty to offering instructions to bomb bombs to supporters of Islamic extremists through mobile phone platforms, the South Florida District Attorney’s Office said.

Born in Pakistan and with US citizenship, Tahir Ismail, 33, will be sentenced on May 23 by District Judge K. Michael Moore.

The confessed criminal faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, up to 5 years of supervised release and a fine of up to $ 250,000.

According to the police report, the Pakistani-American, who was arrested in 2018 in Pembroke Pines in Broward County, he offered instructions at least five times to make bombs through a mobile platform followers of groups like the jihadist State Islamic of Iraq and Syria.

The Pakistani obtained information through the Internet and sent it by mobile phone to several platforms that sympathize with terrorism, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which had been investigating it since 2010.

That year he issued threats against a homeless shelter and proclaimed himself an “Al Qaeda soldier”.

The report details that Tahir Ismail was a close associate of James Gonzalo Medina, who was sentenced in 2017 to 25 years in prison for attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in a synagogue in Aventura, north of Miami. (EFEUSA)
