Terrorist School Attacks

Terrorist School Attacks ---

Terrorist School Attacks ---

Nearly all terrorist attacks on schools and school students and personnel in the middle east, Africa or South Asia by people who are without doubt professional terrorists are by militant Islamists, or people who cite them.

However in Europe, Korea, China, the US and Canada, only angry crazy people with grudges attack schools using military tactics and weapons for no coherent motive, as every incident has no apparent link to terrorist-prone nations or religions or so it is made to appear.

These are events that have been actually officially declared to be terrorist attacks which bear an uncanny resemblance in tactics and violence to non-terrorist attacks by lone gunmen who have no obvious political claims.

20 poison gas attacks on girls' schools in Afghanistan from April 2009 to August 2010. These appear to have involved the release of pesticide-type chemicals in schools; no fatalities have resulted, but a total of at least 636 children and 36 teachers and staff have been injured, some seriously. These attacks have been attributed to the Taliban and have been connected with threats against girls pursuing educations

At least three acid attacks on children and others in Afghanistan. The worst of these attacks targeted girls because they were attending school. The three reported attacks killed 2 and injured 19. Such (generally) non-fatal but mutilating criminal attacks (e.g. against family or acquaintances) are a growing problem elsewhere in Asia, such as in Pakistan.

  • 16 poison attacks in Takhar province, Afghanistan, from April 2012 to July 2012 on girls' schools. Several (if not all) of these cases involved poisoning of the school's water supply. A total of 1,355 children and 28 teachers and staff were injured in these attacks. In June Afghan authorities made arrests in the cases, implicating the Taliban as well as international terrorists. However, the World Health Organization has claimed that the cases are the result of mass hysteria, with no confirmation of the presence of a poison.
  • 7 poison attacks on girls' schools in Afghanistan, from April 2013 to June 2013. These attacks apparently involved gas, with many victims losing consciousness and/or requiring hospitalization. A total of 569 children were injured. Not all are confirmed to have involved intentional poisonings, as mass hysteria is proposed to explain some cases.

On the third day of the standoff, Russian security forces entered the building after several explosions, using other heavy weapons.[6] At least 334 hostages were killed as a result of the crisis, including 186 children,[7][8] with a significant number of people injured and reported missing.
