A Brisbane mother will face court next month on charges of supporting terrorism after being arrested while trying to leave Australia with her four young children.
The 29-year-old woman was charged as a result of a counter-terrorism operation that focuses on foreign incursions, an Australian Federal Police spokesman told AAP.
Detectives from the NSW joint counter-terrorism team stopped the woman at Sydney airport on May 3 as she tried to board an international flight with her children.
The woman is believed to be the wife of Mohamed Elomar, who is reportedly fighting in Syria.
She was living in Brisbane at the time of her arrest but her husband is believed to be from Sydney.
She’s due to appear before Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court on June 2.
Mohamed Elomar’s uncle, also named Mohamed, was jailed for plotting to blow up a Sydney army base and his brother Ahmed is due to be sentenced for his role in the 2012 Hyde Park riot.
