The Vatican city has received many threats from the ISIS terrorist group over recent times, though most of the threats came indirectly. Regions and allies to Rome have been attacked by the extremists in the most recent times.
In response to the most recent threats that came along after the Paris attack,Italy has assigned 700 soldiers to extra security details around Rome with the city on high alert because of concerns about a new terrorist attack as the Jubilee of the Year of Mercy is set to commence and will welcome lots of tourist round the world.
Addressing the Italian Parliament, Italian Interior Minister Angelino Alfano, said that security would be tightened around every corner, particularly around St Peter’s Square; he said: “Particular attention has been dedicated to the risk of an attack from the air, using drones.”
Minister Angelino Alfano has confirmed that all drones will be banned from airspace close to or around Rome from December 8, as the Year of Mercy commences.
