on Tuesday arrested an Ottawa
man for participating in terrorism and recruiting Canadian citizens
to travel to Syria
and fight as ISIS
25-year-old Awso Peshdary had radicalised John Maguire
by providing extremist materials. Peshdary also funded Maguire’s trip to Syria, according to a report by CBC News
Maguire flew to Syria in December 2012
. He was reportedly killed while fighting in Kobani
, Syria last month, but Canadian
authorities said his death was not confirmed.
The Ottawa native appeared in an ISIS propaganda video published last year, praising two terror attacks in Montreal
believe Peshdary also recruited Khadar Khalib
, a 23-year-old friend of Maguire's who flew to Syria through Toronto's Pearson International Airport
on March 29, 2014.
Because of passport issues, Peshdary stayed in Ottawa and continued his effort to recruit more homegrown jihadists. He gave a speech at a college last year and continued to post propaganda materials on social media.
The “spin-off” of the investigation also led
to the arrest of three other men allegedly involved in terrorism activities in January.
