This year's Ramadan one of the deadliest in modern history

More than 1600 people were killed in terrorist related killings during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan according to a tally by Breitbart News.

Breitbart published a list of attacks that occurred around the world between May 27th and June 24. Deaths from Syria's civil war were excluded. While the list is subject to updates, the total found triple the number of casualties compared to last year’s Ramadan month, making it one of the deadliest Islamic holy months in modern history.

The list reported 3,351 injuries, including 1,627 deaths during this year's Ramadan. Last year, the number of casualties was 1,150 (421 deaths and 729 injuries).

The ISIS terrorist group, active in Iraq and Syria as well as other cities around the world, was responsible for much of the deadly violence.
