ISIS to Blame for Nearly Half of Ramadan-Tied Jihadist Kills in 2017


Of all the world’s terror groups, ISIS committed the most killings during Ramadan this year, laying claim to at least 67 different acts of terror that left about 875 individuals dead.

Another 577 or so were injured by the group, according to a database compiled by Breitbart.

And remember: ISIS is the same group labeled by Barack Obama as JV — as the junior varsity team in the varsity terror group crowd.

Here are some specifics, from Breitbart:

ISIS repeatedly called on its sympathizers and followers to carry out violent attacks during Islam’s holiest month — urging them to wage an “all-out war” on civilians in the West at the start of Ramadan.

Islamic State terrorists ended up carrying out more attacks and executing more people than any other jihadi organization.

Meanwhile, the Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked Haqqani Network was behind the deadliest attack of the holy month that left at least 150 people dead and more than 300 wounded in the Afghan capital of Kabul on May 31.

The Pentagon has deemed the Haqqani Network as the “primary threat” facing U.S.-NATO-led coalition troops in Afghanistan.

During the holy month, ISIS carried out attacks nearly every day in about all corners of the world, including the West.

Breitbart News data reveals that ISIS is behind more than 50 percent of the total 1,639 Ramadan fatalities.

Moreover, the figures show that the jihadi group is linked to at least 67 of the estimated 160 Ramadan terror incidents (nearly 40 percent), more than any other terrorist organization.

Taliban terrorists are believed to have carried out at least 15 incidents resulting in 276 deaths and 441 injuries.

Al-Qaeda, including its Somalia-based al-Shabaab affiliate, are reportedly behind at least five terror incidents that yielded 80 deaths and 43 injuries.

An estimated 66 terror attacks that left 327 dead and 379 injured were committed by jihadists that Breitbart was unable to identify and classify.

In other words: ISIS could actually be responsible for even more bloodshed.

Look at the chart, compiled and designed by Breitbart:

ISIS, more than any other terror group, was responsible for the most number of Ramadan-tied terror attacks and deaths.

Again, from Breitbart:

The total of 1,452 ISIS-linked Ramadan casualties amounts to more than 40 percent of the overall 3,343 (1,639 deaths and 1,704 injuries) that occurred during the holy month.

ISIS managed to carry out its first attack on Iranian soil during this year’s Ramadan on June 7, killing at least twelve and injuring 46 others at the Islamic Republic’s parliament and the shrine of its revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

It was a significant victory for ISIS, which had long been threatening to attack the Shiite powerhouse. The attack also fell on Ramadan, a time when martyrdom and jihad are especially valued.

Islamic extremist groups such as ISIS perceive Ramadan as a time when martyrdom and jihad are doubly rewarded in paradise, prompting a spike in the terrorist attacks during the period every year.
