The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda on the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage.
Why It's TragicEdit
- Al-Qaeda coordinated the attacks.
- It threatens America's security.
- The World Trade Center and the Pentagon is hit by a plane.
- This caused the U.S. to start the War on Terrorism.
