Vocativ: ISIS Boasts Of Its Bloody Ramadan

From Orlando to Bangladesh, the group is claiming that 5,200 people were killed or wounded from 'military operations' in one month

ISIS is celebrating the end to a particularly bloody month of attacks. On Tuesday the jihadi group’s weekly magazine al-Naba boasted that 5,200 people were killed or wounded in “military operations” during the holy month of Ramadan, including the deadly attack in Orlando last month. Not all the numbers could independently verified, but they include attacks directly orchestrated by ISIS and others the group took credit for from afar.

In the infographic, ISIS lists 14 different terror attack or military campaigns it carried out in Syria, Iraq, the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa. Among the attacks that are shown in the infographic, the group mentions the suicide blast in Baghdad on July 3, which killed at least 292 people. It also takes credit for the attack by ISIS supporter Larossi Abdallah, who killed a policeman and his partner Magnanville outside of Paris, the attack in Bangladesh that killed 22 during a hostage crisis, for a car bomb attack that killed six Jordanian soldiers near the border with Syria, and for additional operations in Syria, Egypt, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, Nigeria, Somalia and Turkey. Notably, ISIS does not mention the assault on Istanbul’s Ataturk airport that killed 41, although Turkish officials claimed the ISIS leadership was involved in its planning.
