Remembering the Nice Attack

July 14, 2016
86 People Killed
434 Wounded

On July 14, 2016, Tunisian-born Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel drove a 19-ton truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day at Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, killing 86 people and wounding more than 430 others. ISIS claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack two days later, calling Lahouaiej-Bouhlel a “soldier of the Islamic State.”

The attack launched a wave of high-profile vehicular terrorist attacks and attempts in Vienna, Ohio, Berlin, London, Antwerp, Stockholm, and Paris. ISIS has claimed responsibility for several of these attacks, lauding several of the assailants as its so-called “soldiers.”

God forbid, if a time comes when we have no choice but to watch our citizens breathe their final breaths, and when there are no ventilators… we will make six million Israeli settlers unable to breathe.
