A western New York man was arrested after federal authorities said he began recruiting people to join ISIS.

Arafat M. Nagi, 44, of Lackawanna, was charged Wednesday with trying to supply material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, the New York Post reports. 

“This is yet another occasion when the worldwide fight against international terrorism has returned to western New York,” U.S. Attorney William Hochul Jr. said.

According to prosecutors, Nagi traveled to Syria and Yemen to join ISIS in 2012 and 2014 and even bought military gear on eBay.

The FBI said Nagi tried to recruit people on Twitter, where his account was flooded with Arabic tweets supporting ISIS.
