I recently wrote an article, “Why Attacks During Ramadan Are Becoming More Significant to ISIS“. Now that Ramadan is over, this year seems to have started a domino effect of lone-wold attackers across the Middle East and especially Europe that have pledged their allegiance to ISIS. ISIS has claimed responsibility for almost all of the attacks. With each lone wolf attack, those individuals that are vulnerable to radicalized Islamic propaganda and are on the fence about committing a similar crime could be motivated to actually carrying it out.

Here is a map of the ISIS attacks for Ramadan in 2016:
