ISIS fanatics have tweeted chilling photos from European cities counting down to ‘zero hour.’
One of the posts reportedly shows a note in Arabic saying: ‘#Islamic State in Rome. Now is observing and locating for the target. Waiting for the zero hour.’
Others show Milan’s Cathedral and an Expo Centre – while police cars appear to have been deliberately included in several photos.
ISIS has identified Rome, which is the centre of Roman Catholicism, as a target in the past.
The group’s magazine infamously published a photo of its notorious black flag flying over St Peter’s Square.
The disturbing posts come amidst claims by Libya’s intelligence agents that the terrorist organisation is sending fighters into Europe among migrants cross the Mediterranean.
The north African state’s Minister of Information reportedly told Italian news agency ANSA: “In the next few weeks Italy will see the arrival of boats carrying not only poor immigrants from Africa but Daesh (IS).”
It comes after it emerged that the UK would play a major role in battling people trafficking across the Mediterranean.
These latest disturbing tweets were published by the terror watch website Site, but can’t be independently confirmed as posted by ISIS.
