Media reports warn Francis has become target of IS terrorists
Pope Francis has become a target by Islamic State (IS) terrorists, as part of the group’s plan against the West, the Roman newspaper Il Tempo reported, citing Italian secret service and Israeli sources.
In an article published today, the newspaper reports that the IS, which has committed a series of brutal attacks against catholics in Iraq, has targeted the Argentine Pope, as the greatest exponent of Catholic religion, for being “the bearer of false truth.”
“The Islamic terrorist group, leaded by Al-Baghafi (…) seek to raise the level of confrontation by striking Europe and Italy,” it adds.Last week Pope Francis said that it was “licit to stop the unjust aggressor” when asked by reporters about a possible US bombing of Iraq to stop IS, which has made many see Francis as approving of the strikes.
