Site: Pro-IS telegram channel suggests Italy as next target of IS attack

After the Islamic State (IS) claimed credit for the recent attacks in Spain and Russia, a pro-IS Telegram channel suggested Italy as its next target, Site Intelligence Group reports.

Why has Italy been spared mass terror attacks in recent years? asks The Guardian

Italy has spared mass terror attacks in recent years because it has been able to combat the threat of Isis domestically by mastering legal and policing tools developed through years of experience in mafia investigations, which in turn were born out of the so-called “years of lead” – the period between the late 1960s and early 1980s marked by acts of political terrorism by left- and rightwing militants, according to the Guardian.
