Multiple American states experienced simultaneous terrorist assaults on September 11, 2001. These assaults have significantly increased global and American radicalisation. Tuesday, September 11, 2001 marked the second time in its history that an attack on American soil occurred. Before September 11, 2001, the United States of America, which has ruled the world throughout its history, had just escaped the Second World War. In the course of World War II, it experienced attacks on its soil. The initial attackers were the Japanese. Japan also launched an assault on Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor. Other than that, before 2001, there has never been an attack against the United States. According to American intelligence, al-strikes Qaeda’s on September 11 were specifically targeted at the nation’s national security. The United States date system has 9/11 as the designation for the selected date of September 11. America’s emergency hotline is 911.
Attack on September 11 2001
Attack on September 11 2001, on the morning of September 11, a group of Al-Qaeda terrorists, many of whom were graduates of prominent universities in America and Europe, hijacked a number of United and American Airlines aircraft and used them to strike buildings seen as American landmarks. 20 hijackers primarily targeted the World Trade Center, which is situated in New York City’s Manhattan neighborhood and is also known as the Twin Towers and is regarded as the state and national symbol of New York. The attackers entered the South tower of the World Trade Center with a United Airlines Boeing 767 only 15 minutes after they entered the North tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 am local time using an American Airlines Boeing 757. The building’s north tower caught fire from jet fuel when the plane smashed into it between the 94th and 98th floors. About 100 minutes after the crash, when the temperature reached thousands of degrees, the building’s steel skeleton gave way.
A little over 55 minutes after impact, the south tower collapsed. Another jet also made a target on the Pentagon, which serves as both the military and national security hub of the United States. This aircraft collided with the Pentagon structure. Despite the fact that a different plane had been directed at Washington, the passengers, who were aware of the terrorist attacks in New York, rioted to divert the flight, somehow gained access to the cockpit, and crashed the plane into a nearby field. In the three states where the attack occurred—New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania—2,977 people perished. Terrorist assaults resulted in the injuries of almost 6,000 persons. Additionally, some of them have enduring impairments. Following this terrorist act, the US government ascribed responsibility for these assaults to Osama Bin Laden, the leader of Al-Qaeda, and launched military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, respectively.
