Top 10 Largest Terrorist Attacks Ever

Article by ,

Terrorism is the favor of demanding something that is impossible, and demanding it at gunpoint. Everyday in news papers we read about diseases, deaths and not to forget about the deadly “Terrorism attacks” . Other issues have some remedies and prevention but the terrorism is the only issue which was, is and will be a biggest threat for any country. Some dates are never vanished in the world history , for instance, 9/11 for USA and 26/11 for Aamchi Mumbai. There is also this belief that we invite terrorism by ignoring them, It is very hypothetical to comment on terrorism . But now  a “war against terrorism” is an impracticable conception where we are fighting terrorism with terrorism. On stopping  this terrorism  one has to remember this quote from Noam Chomsky  “Everybody’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s a really easy way: stop participating in it” .However,  here are the top 10 unforgettable largest terrorist attacks ever.

10) Ma’a lot Massacre Terrorist Attacks:


In Israeli history, May 15, 1973 May 15, is considered as the worst day and a black day. This is because of the huge massacre happened there as it was the only Jewish state on the earth.  More than 115 people were taken as hostages and out of them 25 were killed and 66 were injured. The terrorists who belonged to the Liberation of Palestine were responsible for this cruel terrorist attack. They managed themselves to enter the Jewish state very easily. This incident took Israel into mourn. After 40 years of this incident people still remember the bad glimpses of that day and the sufferings of the people.

9) TWA Flight 841 Terrorist attacks:

TWA-flight attack

The worst terrorist attack in the air, it is not a Hi-jack. It is something more terrified and miserable attack than that. The day was September 8, 1974. The Flight flew as usual from Athens to Rome. In the middle it took a break and stopped in Greece for about 70 min to take off to reach the next destination, New York City International Airport. In matter of this journey time the plane suddenly crashed into the Lonian Sea. At first the engine failure was given as a reason and the blame was pushed on the pilot’s inefficiency. No sooner the bitter and shocking truth came out stating that this plane collapse was because of a bomb blast in the plane. And the crash was a 100% terrorist bomb blast which belonged to the Abu Nadil Terrorist organisation. Around 80 passengers traveled in this plane and none of them came back safely as they were present lifelessly into the Lonian Sea.

8) Manhattan Attacks:

Manhattan Attacks


In 1997, one among the most well known and famous nationalist group was Puerto Ricon FALN group. It was involved in terrorist activities in US. On August 3 a group of trained people entered Manhattan and ruthlessly attacked both US Defense builds and Mobil Oil building. The attacks registered very low amount of death and injured rate (8 injured and 1 dead, according to the reports). But it hit the defense capabilities and power and also caused financial loss. It was a threatening sign to the US army that remained as the scary and worst terrorist attack ever in the US defense history.

7) Chechnya Border Attacks:


Chechnya is a border between Russia and European countries. March 24, 2001 is said to be a saddest day in Russia. At that time Russia was completely under the hold of the terrorists. These bomb blasts were continues in the form of 3 cars. It did affect the peaceful European country as well, as the blasts were made exactly near the borders.  Both the countries equally shared the killings and faced the doomed consequences. The entire bomb blasts resulted in 20 deaths and 100 injured people.

6) Anthrax attacks:

Anthrax attacks

Soon after the unexpected and the shocking WTC attack this attack took its way gradually. It started exactly after the 1 week of the WTC i.e. September 18; 2001.It had a slow start and steadily caused an impact after several weeks. It claimed the death of 5 innocent lives and injured 15 people.  This was one of the most complicated cases to handle in the history; it was openly stated by FBI officials. This attack dint had bombs, weapons or anything else. It was just through letters that contained these anthrax spores. It was a biological terrorist attack. These letters were posted to the well positioned officials like Senators along with the media officers. The reason behind these attacks is not known exactly. Firstly it was blamed on Al Qaeda, later FBI suspected Dr Ivins who was a country official. After few weeks he committed suicide. This incident led to more suspicious turns. FBI officials also announced that he was a lead head of this attack. The Government officials got panicked and took powerful antibiotics and increased the security.

5) World Trade Centre (WTC) Bombing of 1993:

World Trade center was a center of attraction for all these terrorist attacks. Well before 9/11 incident the WTC already World Trade Center already got a choke through bomb blasts on Feb 26, 1993. This was said to be a failure one as they aimed for twin tower attacks and missed their task. There was a truck placed in the basement parking of North Tower New York city. Miserably, the truck was full of bombing materials.  This was a failure attack as it did not demolish the twin towers. But it was the first biggest attack to destroy the backbone of the US. Ahmad Ajaj, Mahmud Abouhalima, Nidal A. Ayyad, Ramzi Yousef,  Abdul Rahman and Mohammad Salameh, were the core team group who planned and executed this attack  which was financed by Shaikh Mohammed.

4) The Wall Street Bombing:


The death of 38 lives and 143 injured people results Wall Street bombing. This time it was gain in the month of September 16, 1920 at around 12.00 p.m. The bombs shook the New York’s financial sector. The team behind it was not traced exactly but they has a strong doubt and guessed that Galleanists were the one who were behind this cruel attack , but still they were not the officially announced. This is the earliest and the worst terrorist attack.

3) 26/11 Mumbai attacks:


This is the most fiery and weird attack that took place in the Indian History. The spot was India’s  most famous and royal Hotel group  Hotel Taj Mahal which is in the premises of Gate way of India. There was a 64 hours long battle between the Military / police forces and the terrorists. There were shooting and bombing continuously from both the sides. It was like a hotel arrest by terrorist. The date 26 November 2008 will remain in the forever as a black day in the Indian history. There were 10 attacks on the same registered in several places of Mumbai on the same day; however Hotel Taj was the main target which witnessed the death of 100 innocent people who stayed in Taj.

2) The Okahlama city bombing:

Oklahoma City’s, Alfred.P. Murrah Federal building was attacked with bombs on 19 April 1995. This is the 2nd and the deadliest terrorist attack ever on the soil of America. Around 170 people were dead that included 20 children and 680 more victims were injured. The terrorist Timothy Mcveigh , was the sole cause of this attack and he was imprisoned executed to death after 6 years.

1) 9/11 attack (WTC):


The worst attack ever in the world history. It is reported that 2.993 were dead and 8,900 were injured. It literally has some videos and pictures showing the fall of victims from the top most building (from burnt section) facing death very pathetically! 9/11 attack on World Trade Center is truly on top of the list as it is the worst terrorist attack so far that has been faced by humans living anywhere in any part of the world. As it is known to all,  these attacks were planned, monitored and executed by the world’s top most terrorist Osama Bin laden. He brought nightmares to all the US public.

Four planes were planned but only two were hit to the twin towers the others missed the target  wherein one out of the other two hit the Washington pentagon and the last one was crashed into the field in Summer set County. It was a well planned tragic attack ever. It affected Nation’s foreign and democratic rules and policies. It raised doubts against the nation’s security and intelligence power.More importantly it affected all the IT countries which lead to a big set back called “recession”

Conclusion: No matter what, the attacks are small or big, the terrorism must get a full stop. No religion has mandated their followers to kill the followers of the other religion. Killing innocent public does not give any justice to the Nation. Some even consider the terrorism as a war. But in reality it is completely different, killing soldiers or killed by soldiers in war zone is for rescuing purpose to save their own homeland. Hence fight in war zone is for security but “terrorism” calling as a war is to break the security and secularism.

    Hiroshima/Nagasaki attack is not a terrorist attack in any way shape or form. It was an attack by the US government (a government, not a terrorist organization in response to the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japenese. That is called war between two countries, not a terrorist attack.

      Terror is terror even at war! Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Viet Nam are examples of State Terror. USA will remain I hope as the only country that nuked another and used agent orange.

    TWA flight 800 wasn’t a terrorist attack. The plane crashed because of the climatisation system failing causing the plane to explode in the sky.

      Did you read the post correctly? The TWA flight 800 you mention happened in 1996 (a further incident happened with another flight 800 in 1964). The flight mentioned in the post is flight 841, not flight 800.

    Number 0 should be the US bombing of Japan, where hundreds of thousands died, or the killing of millions in vietnam, but that’s none of my business. We all love the US. They can never do anything wrong. Neverrrrrr. The US are always the good guys.

    Okay so you want to consider Hiroshima/Nagasaki (an act war, and Yes I know that is the worst kind) to be a terrorist attack. Well then you are going to have to consider every act of war a terrorist attack because every war is meant to terrorize someone. That means that you will have to consider everyone that Hitler and his followers killed during WWII as part of an overall terrorist attack. Meaning that the Germans and others who followed Hitler were the biggest terrorists in the world’s history, killing millions of people.

    Everyone likes to forget what the US did to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. THAT is the biggest and most devastating terror attack in human history. No one likes to call it a terror attack but they seem to forget that those people in those cities had no warning and and no idea what was about to drop on their heads. They were defenseless civilians. Disgusting. Nothing will ever justify what the US did back then. Nothing. And that’s not even including the firebombings….
