[BREAKING]Europe on RED ALERT as ISIS announces its presence in Rome (PHOTOS)
***Extremist group claim their fighters are already in the heart of Europe
***Fears that ISIS have exploited the Mediterranean refugee crisis
***Threatening photos apparently taken at the Colesseum and tourist spots
Flouting their terror credentials, with Rome’s iconic Colosseum as the backdrop, ISIS supporters have posted photos purporting to show they are already in Europe and counting down ‘till the zero hour’.
The alarming images, published on Twitter, have emerged as Libyan intelligence claims that the Islamic State are exploiting the Mediterranean refugee emergency to send its fighters into the heart of Europe.
IS have made frightening inroads into Libya in recent months taking control of several cities including Sirte, Gaddafi’s birthplace.
Having executed dozens of Christians in several breathtakingly bloodthirsty attacks on the shores of the Mediterranean they then pointed their sabres toward Europe.
There have been growing fears that militants would take advantage of tens of thousands of migrants surging across the Mediterranean to send operatives to Europe.
Now it appears -they have already arrived.
The threatening photos apparently taken at landmarks and train stations in Italy show a piece of paper displaying the Islamic state logo and messages such as ‘Islamic State in Rome. We are in your streets.’
One ominous post was accompanied by the Arabic for ‘#Islamic State in Rome. Now is observing and locating for the target. Waiting for the zero hour.’
Some of the pictures show venues in Milan, including the city’s cathedral and the venues of the Expo exhibition in several others.
Police vehicles in the background of many of the pictures seem intended to further underline the would-be terrorists’ boldness.
However the authenticity of the posts, which were published and translated by the terror watch website Site, cannot be independently confirmed.
