There is a total of 177 incidents that are listed for leftist terrorist groups. On the list of incidents happened within the last ten years, there were none that occurred in the United States. What could have attributed to the decrease in attacks is that these groups may have disbanded or even achieved their goals politically. There is also the chance they’ve disbanded, but members of these groups chose to join other terror groups with similar goals. Most of the leftist’s attacks that have happened occurred in countries in the Middle East, Europe, and South America. One of the attacks describes in Athens, Greece, two assailants opened fire on people standing outside of a Golden Dawn party office in the Neo Iraklio area. This attack resulted in two party members being killed and one being wounded. The Militant People’s ...
