Attacks in 2016 up 27.5% on 2015

„Open-source event data collected and verified over the course of 2016 by Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre (JTIC), recorded a total of 24,202 attacks by non-state armed groups and individuals, and a total of 27,697 non-militant fatalities.

These figures represented a notable 27.5% increase from the recorded number of attacks in 2015, and a corresponding slight 5.9% decrease in the number of non-militant fatalities.

These figures were driven by noteworthy increases in tempo in low-intensity conflicts, particularly in eastern Ukraine, alongside a minor decrease in large-scale or mass-casualty attacks.“ (Source: IHS Markit)
