A dental student who claimed he was only sending money to his militant brother in Syria to pay for a nose job has been convicted of terror offences.
Abdurahman Kaabar, 23, who is studying at Plymouth University, agreed to send £500 in late 2016 to his brother with the help of a friend, Badroddin Kazkaz.
His younger brother Mohammed Kaabar had travelled to Syria via Turkey earlier that year to join the terror group Jabhat al Fateh al Sham - previously known as al-Nusra - who were fighting against government forces.
Kaabar already admitted possessing and disseminating extremist material that could be used by someone planning a terror attack.
The material included advice on bomb making, kidnapping and use of poisons, the Crown Prosecution Service said.
Sheffield Crown Court was told that the offending material showed Kaabar actively supported using violence to achieve political and religious goals.
