Welcome to Breitbart News’s running count of worldwide jihadist terrorist attacks during Ramadan 2017. Check back for updates through the end of the Islamic holy month on June 24.
The casualties during the first half of the holiest month for Muslims have already reached 2,212 (1,086 murders and 1,126 injuries), nearly doubling the 1,150 that took place in 2016.
There have been nearly 90 attacks more than 20 predominantly Muslim countries in nearly first 17 days of the holy month.
With about half of the month leftover, this year’s Ramadan is on track to be the bloodiest, exceeding the 421 deaths and 729 injuries that took place during the same period in 2016, the deadliest Ramadan in recent memory.The first full day of the holy month fell on May 27.
Most Muslims follow the tradition of abstaining from eating, drinking, smoking, having sex, and other physical needs each day, starting from before the break of dawn until sunset during the holy month.
However, other adherents of Islam perceive Ramadan as a time when martyrdom and jihad are especially rewarded in paradise, prompting a spike in the terrorist attacks during the holy month.
Islamic extremist groups encourage martyrdom among their sympathizers and followers, promoting the belief that they will be doubly rewarded if they fatally castigate infidels during Ramadan.
As in others years since the group surfaced in 2014, the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is the leading jihadist organization behind the Ramadan carnage.
The Taliban and its ally al-Qaeda have also been involved in the killing and murder of mainly fellow Muslims.
In previous years, the fatalities have included women, children, and members of the Christian minority. This year is no exception.
There are members of a wide variety of ethnic and religious groups among the victims: Westerners, Christians, Asians, Sunnis, Shias, and Arabs. Muslims of all sects made up the majority.
The West has not been immune to the Islamic extremists’ call to massacre during Ramadan.
Breitbart News’ count, gleaned from the Religion of Peace website in coordination with news reports, for the most part excludes casualties directly linked to battles between U.S.-led coalition and Iranian- and Russian-backed troops loyal to dictator Bashar al-Assad.
The Religion of Peace website acknowledges their estimate is an undercount, so the number of Ramadan deaths and injuries could be higher.
