Rome is under threat of terrorist attacks by Albanian ISIS recruits based in Italy

January 25, 2017 » Today News »

The terrorist threat for Italy does not come from the desperate migrants seeking a better life but on the contrary, from Albanian villages which have raised ISIS flags.
The report focussed on villages bordering with Kosovo, and quoted a source from the Italian intelligence services as saying, “this is a powder keg […] Italy is an exposed country”.

The risk is particularly apparent in the province of Puglia, a stone-throw from the Balkan country across the Adriatic sea, and it’s believed that the local Albanian mafia, organized crime, and drug trafficking are involved.

Since the birth of the Islamic State, a significant number of foreign fighters have been recruited from the Western Balkans, including at least 1,000 fighters from Albania.
