ISIS fanatics have urged jihadists to attack Rome in an online poster showing a wolf overlooking St Peter’s Square.
A chilling threat posted by supporters of the terror group warned: ‘The Crusaders’ feast is approaching – show them the meaning of terrorism’.
The pro-ISIS Wafa media group posted a picture of a jihadist facing the Papal Basilica with a rocket launcher along with a message urging extremists: ‘Do not hold back with your blood the reward is paradise.’

The message warned that ‘the crusaders’ feast is approaching’ before adding: ‘Their convoys will crowd itself in front of you prepare and plan for them show them the meaning of terrorism.
‘Kill them and do not hold back with your blood the reward is paradise and let them know that you are from an ummah [Muslim community] where mountains bow down to.
‘We will not forget our revenge for every drop of blood that they have shed we will not exclude the young, elderly or women you are all in the crosshairs of our arrows and what is about to come is more even worse.’

The poster comes after an ISIS supporting group released a chilling image depicting a beheaded Pope Francis.
In the gruesome picture – which MailOnline has chosen not to show in its entirety – a jihadist stands over the orange-jumpsuited body of a prisoner and clutches the decapitated head of Pope Francis.
The terrorist on the poster is clad in khaki with a white scarf over his face and a knife in one hand as he stands in front of several damaged buildings.
Next to the severed head is the pope’s name, ‘Jorge Mario Bergoglio’.
The image was circulated by the pro-ISIS Wafa Media Foundation and it comes just days after they threatened to launch a Christmas terror attack on the Vatican.
The previous poster showed a masked figure driving towards St Peter’s Basilica with a gun and a backpack inside his car.
At the top of the poster is the message ‘Christmas blood’ with the line ‘so wait…’ written in red underneath.
