The Italian governor said that terrorists should be sent to Allah before they cause damage.
Mayor of Venice Luigi Bruniaro threatened to shoot without warning to those who suddenly decided to shout “Allah Akbar” at the famous St. Mark’s Square, RIA Novosti reported.
“We in Italy have to defeat terrorism, and we are strengthening the defense, and I declare that if someone starts running around San Marco Square shouting” Allahu Akbar “, we will shoot him. A year ago I said that we would do this after four Steps, now I will say – after three, “Bruniaro said at the international Catholic forum in Rimini.
“We will send the terrorists directly to Allah before they inflict damage on us,” Bruniaro clarified with laughter and applause.
Many Italian media interpreted the statement of the Venetian mayor as a provocation. However, he thinks differently.
“Unlike Barcelona, where there was not adequate protection, we are on the alert.” We are not challenging anyone, except that we are sending a message of support to the law enforcement agencies who need to know that we are unconditionally on their side, “Brunyaro said later.
“Enough politically correct conversations, we must speak clearly, we should not give the impression that in Italy you can do anything,” the mayor of Venice said.
Recall, May 17, the van drove into a crowd of people in Barcelona. Later another wagon drove into a group of people in Cambrils. According to official data, as a result of incidents in Spain, 14 people were killed, 130 injured.
Responsibility for the attack was assumed by the Islamic state.
