A Moroccan identified as one of ISIS’s top propaganda chiefs in Italy has been arrested in Turin, along with a number of other nonwhite invaders pretending to be refugees in a series of anti-terrorist raids conducted throughout that country, according to reports in the Italian media.
According to a report in the RAI news service, 23-year-old Moroccan-origin Elmahdi Halili stands accused of producing the first ISIS propaganda text in Italian and participating in the broader “terrorist association of the Islamic State.”
The investigation by the Turin Public Prosecutor’s Office “expanded to the hubs of the Islamic State throughout northern Italy,” the report added, inadvertently revealing the full extent of the nonwhite invasion of that region.
At least 13 premises were searched, and, according to the report, at least 50 known ISIS militants are currently at large in Italy. A further five nonwhites were arrested along with Halili yesterday, the report continued.
Earlier, the Egyptian-origin president of the “Al Dawa” Islamic center in Foggia, Abdel Rahman, was also arrested after his propaganda texts called on Muslims to “slaughter the infidels.”
Another text issued by Rahman called on Muslims to “fight the unbelievers, with your swords cut off their heads, with your explosive belts you blow their heads up in the air. It is necessary to break the skulls of the unbelievers and drink their blood to get victory.”
There have already been four arrests and two expulsions in the province of Foggia during anti-terrorism investigations, a report added.
On May 19, 2017, Italian police arrested Kamel Sadraoui, a 34-year-old Tunisian on charges of promoting terrorism, while on July 8, a 38-year-old Chechen in Foggia, Eli Bombataliev, was arrested on similar charges.
On December 15, 2017, police arrested an Algerian national, Yacine Gasry, at the railway station of Foggia, on charges of providing logistical support to Algerian terrorist groups.
