The Nigerian-based fanatics have dispatched up to 200 heavily armed troops to bolster ISIS forces in north Africa in a terrifying sign of the growing alliance between the two feared groups.

ISIS is fighting to take control of Libya - which has been engulfed by a chaotic civil war since the fall of Colonel Gadaffi - because it believes that it is a launchpad to Europe.

Boosted by the deployment, gleeful ISIS fighters boasted online of how they will use their stronghold in the north African nation to invade Italy and other parts of southern Europe.

The terrorists have described Libya as the "gateway to Rome" and it is thought they are planning to stow away fighters on smugglers' boats full of migrants destined for Italy.

ISIS supporters posted a series of mocked up messages online showing the eternal city in flames and the black flag of their hate group flying above the Vatican.

One even posted a map showing the area the terror group was targeting, writing in French that its fighters will conquer Iran, Burma, Rome and even America.

Another, going under the name Abu el Gandal Barkawi, tweeted to ISIS supporters to "go to Rome through Libya, the port for Rome".

He added: "The weapons of the Ottomans were launched and have surrounded Rome after conquering Libya to the south of Italy. Who wants to take Rome and Andalusia has to start from Libya."

Another key ISIS figure posted a rallying cry online calling for people from across the region to take up arms and fight for the group in Libya.

Saudi national Ali el Gezrawi called for "brothers' unity" and said Islamist fanatics from Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Egypt and Sudan should join fighters from Boko Haram in Libya.

He said: "Libya is the land of jihad and immigration, not only belongs to the Libyans, but to all Muslims who believe in God, and it is a state of the Caliphate. "

In the video posted online he also threatened to kill General Khalifa Haftar, the commander of the Libyan army.

ISIS has looked to strengthen its ties with Boko Haram in recent months amid signs that its overstretched forces are beginning to be beaten back across the Middle East.

In June the terror group declared territory seized by Boko Haram in Nigeria as its West African province.

Nigerian terror expert Jacob Zenn said that between 80 to 200 of the group's fighters are now fighting in the Libyan city of Sirte, which ISIS has founded as its new capital in North Africa.

He said: “The openness of migration routes from Nigeria through eastern Niger to Libya makes travel fairly straightforward, and the Islamic State can easily afford to pay smugglers to carry militants and weapons along that route."

The Nigerian government's press office added: “There have been reports in recent times of some Nigerians departing to join terrorist groups especially in the Middle East and North Africa.”
