Nice, France Truck Ramming Began Wave of Deadly Vehicle Terror Attacks

(New York, NY) – On the evening of July 14, 2016, 31-year-old Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel rammed a 19-ton rented truck into a crowd of people watching a Bastille Day fireworks display on Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, killing 86 people and wounding more than 430 others, before being shot and killed by police. ISIS later claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack, calling Lahouaiej-Bouhlel a “soldier of the Islamic State.”

In the year since the Nice attack, at least nine high-profile terrorist incidents were carried out using motor vehicles as the primary weapon. In Remembering the Nice Attack, the Counter Extremism Project (CEP) brings together detailed information about the Nice attack, the perpetrator, and subsequent vehicle attacks and attempts that occurred in Vienna, Ohio, Berlin, London, Antwerp, Stockholm, and Paris. As in Nice, ISIS also claimed responsibility for several of the subsequent attacks, celebrating and lauding the assailants as its so-called “soldiers” on social media.
