The men, aged 21, 26 and 30, all had their passports cancelled this year in January, March and October because authorities suspected they wanted to travel to a conflict zone. The men are Australian nationals of Turkish background with little criminal history.

Hanifi Halis, 21, of Greenvale, Ertunc Eriklioglu, 30, from Dallas, and Samed Eriklioglu, 26, of Campbellfield have all been charged with planning a terrorist attack and have since faced court.

Since the threat level was raised in September 2014, 90 people have been charged in relation to 40 counter-terrorism investigations across the country.
