Template:Campaignbox 2015 Ramadan attacks On 26 June 2015, four Islamist terrorist attacks occurred on three different continents. ISIS senior leader Abu Mohammad al-Adnani had released an audio message three days earlier encouraging militants everywhere to attack during the month of Ramadan.[1]

One attack, at a Tunisian beach resort, killed at least 39; a bombing at a Shia mosque in Kuwait City killed 27 and injured several; another attack in Leego District in Somalia killed at least 70 African Union soldiers and injured 27 more; and one man was decapitated while several were injured during the Saint-Quentin-Fallavier attack. The total number of deaths was 137.

Saint-Quentin-Fallavier[edit]

On the morning of 26 June 2015, two Islamist militants burst through the factory gates of an Air Products factory in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier near the city of Lyon. Several small gas bombs were thrown on the site in an attempt to blow up the building. One man was killed and about 12 factory workers were injured.

Kuwait City[edit]

A suicide bombing took place on 26 June 2015 in Kuwait at a Shia mosque. The attack was claimed by Islamic State. The Emir of Kuwait visited the location of the incident minutes after it happened.[2]

Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the attack, and called the perpetrator "Abu Sulaiman al-Muwahhid".

Sousse[edit]

The Sousse attacks occurred on 26 June 2015 in the Tunisian town of Sousse. At least 27 people, mostly tourists, were killed when armed gunmen attacked two hotels.

Leego[edit]

Al Shabaab militants attacked an African Union base in the Lego district of Somalia and killed more than 70 African Union soldiers and seized control of their military base.
