Terror attacks by ISIS spiked following the US pull-out from Afghanistan despite for most of 2021 remaining similar to the levels of violence the group generated in 2020, a Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center report said. Based on ISIS’s own claims of responsibility, the Center said that ISIS operatives carried out 2,705 terrorist acts around the globe in 2021, compared to 2,718 in 2020.

The height of the attacks was in April-May 2021, during the month of Ramadan, but there was also a particular spike of suicide bombing attacks in Afghanistan in August and October 2021 which “significantly increased the number of casualties” for the year as a whole, said the report. This corresponded to Washington’s withdrawal.
