According to the study, 33,769 terrorist attacks were carried out during the period concerned, in which 167,096 people were killed and 151,431 injured.

The study, which was prepared on the sixth anniversary of the Paris attacks, showed that 89.1% of terrorist attacks were committed in Muslim countries and 91.2% of the victims were Muslims.

At the European level, the study, led by university professor of political science Dominique Rainier, said that 54% of ISIS terrorist operations perpetrated in European countries were committed in France.
