Mohamed Rafik Naji allegedly attempted to travel to ISIS territory five times but was unsuccessful. An FBI informant contacted Naji through Facebook. Naji told the informant the best ways to join ISIS and claimed that the terrorist group desired to attack Times Square using a garbage truck. “I was saying if there is a truck, I mean a garbage truck, and one drives it there to Times Square and crushes them,” Naji told the informant.
