This week in terrorism: January 18-24, 2021 – Borealis Threat & Risk Consulting
Totals: 16 attacks; 124 dead; 151 wounded; all attacks carried out by Islamist terrorists (100%)
This is the launch of a new series by Borealis! In it we will log and describe all the acts of terrorism that occurred in the world in the course of a given week (Monday to Sunday).
The attacks listed are taken from open source and there is no pretense that it is exhaustive (although any major attack anywhere would most probably have been taken up by some media source somewhere).
The purpose of this series is to present facts on where terrorism is happening and who is behind it. It is an effort to document what is actually happening on the ground rather than speculate on which set of terrorist actors poses the greatest threat to public safety and national security.
If we have missed something significant please let us know. We love getting feedback at Borealis!
