Mr Scipione said both men are expected to be refused bail. Alou is expected to face Central Local Court and Alameddine is expected to face Parramatta Court. 

Police would not rule out making further arrests.

After Alou's initial arrest on Wednesday, police were first granted an order allowing them to detain him for an extra 100 hours. 

On Monday, prosecutors were successfully granted permission to detain him for a further 68 hours. But police only had until Thursday afternoon to hold him without charge. 

Police confirmed overnight that Jabar, 15, was not in contact with Neil Prakash, Australia's top recruiter for the Islamic State extremist group, as some news outlets had reported.
