The Beslan attack took place on September 3 , 2004. The attack was in Beslan, Russia and killed 366 and injured 747 civilians. This attack is one of the worst attacks on Russian soil ever recorded. The attackers forced their way into a school , the attackers took hostages. The attack killed 156 children and injured 337 more.
The attack took place in a school. The attackers took over 1,000 hostages and killed many of them after they tried to escape. The attackers deliberately took small children as they knew they wouldn’t fight back. The terrorist took teachers as well as parents as they were in the school celebrating the first day of school . The hostages were taken to the gymnasium , the attackers then rigged the gym with explosives.
The hostages were not given water or food of any sort. The Russian special forces moved into the school and tried to enter the gym when the explosives went off. This killed many civilians and others were killed by fire. The attackers shot down any survivors, some civilians survived with shot wounds or burns. The Russian forces killed most of the attackers but one , the man fled the school and was later captured by the special forces.
This attack was a ambush on the school and was inevitable as there was no way to avoid it . The school was taken over by hostages and lasted two days with no food or water . I think this attack shows that terrorism is a big thing in the world and has to be stopped. This attack was targeting small children shows how messed up people in the world can be . This attack killed many people and injured even more , the attack affected people all around the world.
There are many terrorist groups, some have done more devastation than others. These groups were composed for destruction and mayhem. Terrorist groups can range from small groups to large groups in the thousands. These groups of terrorist can range from small scale attacks to global threats.
ISIS is a very well known terrorist group in modern day. There attacks have been focused on Europe mostly, but have also attacked the United states and Australia. Most of these attacks are concentrated on a certain person or location that would have the greatest impact on a community. ISIS has killed more than 1,200 people outside of Syria. ISIS is thought to have up to or even more than 80,000 members.
Al-Qaeda is the best known terrorist group. They have had the greatest impact of any terrorist group and have affected the most countries in the world. Al-Qaeda's most devastating attack was on American soil when a plane struck the twin towers. The group was founded by Osama bin Laden and the objective of the group was to unify Muslims through jihad . They killed thousands of innocent people.
The Taliban is a well known terrorist group in the middle East . This group was founded by Mullah Mohammed Omar in the mid 90's. The Taliban is known for human trafficking as well as drug trafficking. They believe in jihad and kill in his name. This group has killed thousands of innocent people as a believe in there god.
The Munich Massacre was a attack on Israeli Olympians. This attack took place on September 5, 1972 from 4:31 a.m. till 12:04 a.m. the next day. The terrorist group held responsible for this attack is known as Black September. Five of the eight terrorist connected to this attack were killed and the other three were captured. The attack happened by surprise as the members of the Olympic team were asleep.
The attack killed 11 Olympians and one German policemen. The terrorist hid their weapons in duffel bags and scaled a fence outside the Olympic Village. The attackers had used stolen keys to gain access to the building and sneak there way to the rooms of the Olympians. The attackers had an easy time getting the Olympic hostages as the Israelis did not have guards. The attackers snuck into the rooms and took the hostages and demanded 234 of the “Red Army Faction,” be released .
Yossef Gutfreund was a wrestling referee and the first awakened by the intruders. The man tried to keep the intruders out but was it was a futile attempt as the attackers pushed through. They shot Yossef in the cheek and forced him to help look for other hostages. Yossef led the to apartment 3 , the attackers took hostages and were taking them back to the coaches offices when Yossef attacked the intruders once more. This attack allowed Gad Tsobari to escape through a parking garage but left Yossef dead as the terrorist shot him to death.
I believe that this could have been avoided if the Israeli grouped have had guards or sometime of protection. The attack came out of nowhere and surprised the Olympians leaving them no time to defend themselves. The attackers used AKM assault rifles and forced the Olympians to move to the coaches offices were some confrontations happened and left one dead. 11 of the Olympians would be killed in this attack , 2016 was the first time that tribute was paid to the people in the attack. The attack left the 1972 Olympics in disbelief and horror after what had happened.
Will terrorism still be around in the future? Yes, terrorism will always be around. Terrorism is a attack of anger against a country usually, people will always find something that angers them. Terrorism can’t be stopped by just one person or one country . I believe that it would take the entire world working together to stop terrorism or even make it less of a global threat. Terrorism will always find a way to shake a country or the entire world.
How will we stop terrorism in the future? There is no real way to stop terrorism. Terrorist attack are at random without anyone knowing of the attack till after . Terrorism can’t be stopped because it can't be guessed when , or were a terrorist attack is going to take place. Terrorism will be stopped showing that it is a serious crime and punishable to full extent. Terrorism won’t be stopped anytime soon but we can decrease the amount of attacks by being ready and secure.
Is terrorism a big deal to worry about for the future? Yes, terrorism is a big deal. Terrorism kills thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people every year. Terrorism can cause wars or even civil wars. Terrorism cause countries billions of dollars to fix or bring back peace. Terrorism is a big deal in media, this makes people more aware of what's happening , which can lead to rioting and protesting in cities and towns.
How will terrorism affect people? Terrorism will make people feel scared and worried about there future for themselves and others. Terrorism affect everyone that will ever live , it might not be directly linked to them but it will always be around them. Terrorism always finds a way to affect your life. Terrorism has the effect to change people that haven’t even been born yet , it can change the world,
The act of suicide bombing wasn't notorious till after World War II. The first large scale suicide bombing took place on October 23 , 1983. The attack was on a U.S. base called Lebanon . The attacker drove a truck into the base and proceeded to detonate the vehicle. Suicide bombings have been plaguing countries all around the world , recently France has been targeted by large scale terrorism .
Why are acts of terrorism committed? Acts of terrorism are committed usually through anger for a country. Some terrorist believe that if they commit crimes like terrorism there god will praise them. Islamic and Muslim are seen as the focal point of terrorism due to large scale terrorism acts such as 9/11. Terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS plague countries all around the world. Terrorism acts usually focus on large populated places with sentimental value to that country.
Large scale terrorist attacks are usually on highly populated areas. Terrorism attacks can devastate countries or can lead to Civil War , many terrorist attacks in Iraq prompted a Civil War. Airports are terrorist most targeted large scale attacks , usually sneaking small weapons or bombs onto an airplane. Terrorist have found ways to sneak some bombs through airport security , these bombs are used to hijack a plane or to detonate in mid-air. Some terrorist will attack the airport itself with heavy weapons or suicide bombs strapped to them.
I believe that terrorism has to be stopped for a brighter future. The world wants world peace but that is not feasible with terrorist attacks happening. Terrorism has been going for as long as can be remembered and there hasn't been a solution to it yet. I think terrorism attacks happen mainly because there frustration due to other counties or their own country. Terrorism will probably never be stopped , there are new people every day joining terrorist groups.
