UPDATE (Aug 17 2017) — The number now stands at every seven days on average on the European continent and in Russia.
The latest attacks include the Barcelona van attack, the car attack on French police, a car attack on police in Belgium, a knife attack in Paris, a knife attack in Hamburg, an attempted bombing in Brussels, a car attack in Paris, a knife attack in London, a knife attack attempt in the United Kingdom, an anti-Muslim van attack in London, a knife attack in London, a hammer attack in France, a vehicle attack with knives at London Bridge.
In total, at least 63 people have been killed by mostly Islamic terrorists in 2017, with over 315 injured. A recent incident involving an anti-Muslim terror attack meant that out of 30 attacks in Europe in 2017, just two were not related to Islam or Muslims.
Excerpted original story follows:
The other known incident not linked to jihadism in 2017 was the attack on the Borussia Dortmund soccer team by a Russian-German national attempting to profit from short-selling stock in the company.
Attacks and attempted attacks have taken place in Austria, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Germany.
Security services in Britain — population 65 million — believe there to be around 23,000 potential terror suspects or persons posing a threat. Meanwhile Belgium, with its population of just 12 million, is officially tracking around 18,000 potential jihadists, though this number has not been updated in some time.
A further minimum of 14 terror attacks have occurred in Turkey in 2017, a NATO member country currently being considered for European Union membership.
