Survivors of Terrorism, you are not alone

Recognizing the loneliness and isolation experienced by many survivors and families affected by terrorism, he said the COVID-19 pandemic and related movement restrictions have further limited their ability to connect with loved ones.

Spotlighting the International Day’s 2021 theme in his official message, the UN chief said “connection” is a crucial healing agent for many terrorism survivors, helping them to feel heard and seen.

“Today we say to all victims and survivors of terrorism: you are not alone,” he said.

The International Day comes on the heels of a Security Council debate on the ongoing threat posed by terrorist groups and the organ’s first-ever standalone statement on the role of technology in protecting UN peacekeepers amid asymmetric threats.

It also comes days after an emergency meeting on Afghanistan, during which the top UN official appealed to the global community to ensure that country is never again used as a platform or safe haven for terrorists.
