Italy is under the threat of Islamic terrorism. A dense terrorist network is expanding in the country, as proven by the recent arrest in Milan of a 22-year-old man of Egyptian origin, who has been called the “lone wolf.” He was considered extremely dangerous, both for his military training and for the connection with the other members of the “network.” From here, therefore, we managed to get the feedback on the presence of Daesh and, consequently, its propaganda structures used in the territorial borders of our country.
But, according to recent information leaked between the news and, especially on the web, it seems that, under the scope of Isis, Italy isn’t the only country threatened, but also France and the United States.
Luckily, the 22-year-old’s capture has allowed Italy to identify two other dangerous subjects and also to intensify investigative controls throughout the nation. It’s something new and powerful that needs to be observed and kept under control.
The documents found
What emerged from the investigation is, to say the least, shocking. The fact that a “morning” of ISIS has been created that summarizes the activities of the previous hours, raises many concerns. From here, indeed, emerged a summary of the activities carried out by terrorists in the week from July 25-31, 2018, with alarming numbers of victims.
Another alarming fact is Daesh’s description of how to deal with Westerners. Terror spread after these goals were made known: “Repel them with belts and suicide vehicles; shock them with explosive devices; paralyze them with silencers and sniper weapons; expand terror and panic with assaults.”
It is a situation that must necessarily be kept under constant and uninterrupted control.
Isis threatens Italy. The terrorist propaganda of the Islamic State spread through some websites used by the Caliphate. Italy is in the crosshairs, together with France and the United States. For example, on one site supporting Islamic terrorism, is the flag of the Caliphate. What is unusual about this is that the Caliphate flag is flown on the bell tower of San Marco.
This peaceful place is targeted because they do not want to disappear completely from the media. Therefore, it is important to them to create strong images of propaganda. Indeed, this would affect their ability to recruit and, at the same time, even threaten.
The investigative activity and the words of the 22-year-old
“I’m ready to fight.” These are the words uttered by the 22-year-old Egyptian; who knew how to settle without causing suspicion. But, fortunately, the police investigators kept him under surveillance for some time. And it’s thanks to this that it was possible to learn of the danger of the aforementioned, who boasted of having received very thorough military training. At the same time, two other subjects are under investigation. Two expulsion orders were issued by the Minister of the Interior, Matteo Salvini, against offending Egyptians.
Finally, this has certainly proven to be an operation of considerable importance that demonstrates the excellence of Italy’s forces of the order of its investigators, as stated by the Minister of the Interior, Matteo Salvini.
