Today marks 22 years since September 11, which is considered the worst terrorist attack in human history. 11 September 2001, which is known as the darkest day in American history, marks the 22nd anniversary of the Al Qaeda terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington.

The terrorist attack of September 11, which is considered to be the worst and biggest attack of international terrorism, was carried out by an Al Qaeda terrorist group, which hijacked 4 American airplanes and carried out the massive attack. Two of the 4 hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Center and crashed into the Pentagon, the American security center.

It was reported that the fourth plane crashed in Pennsylvania due to a disturbance by a passenger. Apart from the terrorists on the plane, it was reported that 2,996 people lost their lives in those attacks, and thousands more suffered long-term health consequences. About 25,000 people were injured. The United States had estimated that the property damage was more than 10 billion US dollars.

The United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001 to punish Al Qaeda and its former leader, Osama bin Laden, who claimed responsibility for the attack. That, breaking the Taliban rule. As a result, Osama bin Laden was killed in 2011. It is also reported that lots of annual memorial ceremonies will be held in America today after the terrorist attack.
