Islamic terrorists carried out at least 177 terror attacks during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan this year, killing 841 people and wounding 1,014 others across nearly 25 countries, a Breitbart News tally shows.

This year, Breitbart News’ count covers Islamic terrorist attacks from May 17 through June 15 — the month of Ramadan in most Muslim-majority countries covered by the data.

Breitbart - News - Total - Casualties - Period

Breitbart News documented a total of 1,855 casualties during that period, a drop of about 45 percent from the 3,343 (1,639 killed, 1,704 injured) recorded during Ramadan last year when the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) was much stronger.

ISIS has suffered major losses in Iraq and Syria largely at the hands of the U.S.-led coalition and its Kurdish allies, losing its so-called caliphate under American President Donald Trump’s watch. The terrorist group has been pushed out of Iraq and squeezed the into ever-shrinking small pockets of territory in Syria.

Taliban - ISIS - World - Islamic - Terrorist

The Taliban replaced ISIS as the world’s most prolific Islamic terrorist group during Ramadan 2018, killing at least 324 Afghan civilians and security forces and wounding 404 others people despite participating in an unprecedented ceasefire at the end of the holy month.

Afghan Taliban jihadists were responsible for about 40 percent of all casualties this year, trailed by ISIS, which was behind about 30 percent.

ISIS - Boko - Haram - Wing - People

ISIS, including its Nigeria-based Boko Haram wing, killed 256 people and wounded 281 others. Boko Haram alone killed 35 and wounded 65 others in Nigeria, one of the top five bloodiest countries during Ramadan. Fatalities in Nigeria were primarily fueled by Muslim extremist herdsmen this year, known to target the Christian minority in the country.

The herdsmen, described as terrorists by Christian persecution tracking organization Open Doors, killed 43 people and injured 45 others during the holiest month for Muslims, Ramadan.
