A 25-year-old Uzbek man who lives in Brooklyn pleaded guilty on Friday in US federal court in New York to charges of conspiring to provide material support to Islamic State militants, the US Justice Department said.

Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev entered the plea before US District Court Judge William Kuntz II of the Eastern District of New York. Juraboev faces up to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced.

"The defendant planned to travel to Syria to wage jihad on behalf of ISIL, and was prepared to commit a terrorist attack on American soil if he were not able to make that trip," Acting US Attorney Kelly Currie of the Eastern District of New York said, using an acronym for Islamic State.
