Next Target Of ISIS: Italy

Next target of ISIS: Some of Italy’s sites have been named as potential targets for terrorist activity, including St. Peter’s Basilica.

Everyone is wondering where the next target of ISIS is. The State Department said some of Italy’s sites are “potential targets” for terrorist attacks.

Some of these locations include the Vatican’s St. Peter’s Basilica, the Duomo and La Scala theater in Milan, and venues like churches, restaurants and hotels, the U.S. Embassy in Rome said. These locations have been identified as potentially high-risk.

While not clearly citing ISIS, in a message to American citizens, it was said, “Terrorist groups may possibly utilize similar methods used in the recent Paris attacks. The Italian authorities are aware of these threats.”

According to CBS News, RAI state radio said that while “there are no direct signs of concrete threats” for terrorist activity in St. Peter’s and other landmarks in Milan, government officials have said they are neither underestimating nor over-emphasizing the information they have received.

Italian Foreign Minister, Paolo Gentiloni, said security services were “working to identify five people.” However, he did not mention who these individuals were.

On Wednesday, Pope Francis‘ weekly audience was held in St. Peter’s Square. No incident occurred during the event. La Scala’s season will take off on December 7, Milan’s patron saint’s feast day, with a gala premiere. Around 700 soldiers will be deployed for security in Rome. Following last week’s Paris attacks, Italy has lifted its security alert level to 2, according to NBC News. Stay tuned for more updates on the possible next target of ISIS.
