Despite Three Weeks of Ramadan, Jihadis Continues to Go On A Killing Spree
In a report compiled by Breitbart News, casualties from Jihadis terrorist attacks continued to pile up, despite the three weeks of Ramadan.
Overall, Islamic terrorists had killed more than 584 people and injured 587 during the span of the Muslim holy month. The numbers were between April 24 and May 14. Each day, the terrorist killed an estimated 28 people and injured 28 more on average. What’s more bothersome is that the attacks continued despite the Ramadan and the Chinese virus pandemic.
During the “Battle of Ramadan” Jihadis from the second deadliest group, the Islamic State killed at least 13 and injured 14 security forces. The recent attack brought fears of a possible IS resurgence in Iraq. The number of deaths and casualties is expected to exceed those in 2019. To point this out, there had been a 10 percent increase from the number of deaths and injuries during the same period last year.
Moreover, the US puts the blame on ISIS for the heinous attack on a maternity ward in Kabul, Afghanistan. The attack killed 24 people, including hospital staff, mothers, and newborn babies. Frederic Bonnot, the head of the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Afghanistan, described the ghastly scene. “What I saw in the maternity hospital demonstrates it was a systematic shooting of the mothers,” he said. He continued that the terrorists “went through the rooms in the maternity, shooting women in their beds. It was methodical.” He described the aftermath of the attack as “Walls sprayed with bullets, blood on the floors in the rooms, vehicles burnt out and windows shot through.” In fact, three of the women were killed inside the delivery room.
Another prominent terrorist group, the Afghan Taliban, also had 76 attacks, which resulted in 264 deaths and 278 injuries. Being labeled as the bloodiest Islamic terrorist group, they account for almost half of the deaths and casualties.
Just this year, the US and the Taliban have signed a preliminary peace agreement, which might possibly bring an end to nearly two decades of the Afghan war. Part of the negotiation includes the withdrawal of US foreign forces in the country, in exchange for the Taliban to prevent other terrorists from planning a US attack on Afghan soil as what had happened on the deadly September 11, 2001 attack. The terrorist group also started a conversation with Afghan national leaders for prison exchange and a “permanent comprehensive ceasefire.”
On his decision to withdraw US forces, Trump believes that it is now time to “bring back” American soldiers home. The President had also recognized the thousands of American soldiers who have lost their lives in the war.
Trump held a strong commitment against terrorism. In fact, earlier this year, the US launched a drone attack that killed Iranian military leader, Qassem Soleiman. The attack also signaled an abrupt end to Soleiman’s decade long terror campaign “his reign of terror is over,” Trump concluded.
