A Muslim refugee who worked at O’Hare Airport and her five associates charged with attempting to provide support to ISIS invoked an unusual defense. Mediha Medy Salkicevic has claimed that her support of ISIS constituted “legitimate warfare” and that she was waging war against the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

The six Muslims charged with supporting ISIS allegedly shipped firearms accessories, camouflage clothing and U.S. military uniforms, boots, rifle scopes, gloves and other combat gear.“

Salkicevic reportedly said she wanted to “bury unbelievers alive” and kill infidels.

Under United States law, acts of legitimate warfare during a civil war are not murder and are entitled to combatant immunity,” her attorneys said. They argue that Americans are “protected from prosecution as acts of legitimate warfare under the doctrine of combatant immunity.”

On Friday, her attorneys filed a motion to dismiss two charges: conspiracy and providing material support to terrorists.

Salkicevic and her alleged co-conspirators stand accused of sending money and military equipment to Bosnian national Abdullah Ramo Pazara, an ISIS leader in Syria.

Goods were allegedly shipped through the U.S. Postal Service to Istanbul, Turkey, and then smuggled into Syria-destined for radical Muslim fighters affiliated with ISIS.
