The attacks of 26/11
On November 26, 2011, 10 terrorists from Lashkar-e-Taiba arrived in Mumbai by boat from Pakistan and carried out a series of synchronized fire and bombing operations around the city. The attackers targeted important landmarks in Mumbai after navigating the city under cover of darkness, with the first attack taking place at the crowded Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) railway station. The attack on this station was carried out by Ajmal Amir Kasab and Ismail Khan, who killed 58 people and injured more than 100 others. Kasab and Khan later entered to attack Cama Medical. They killed six policemen, including Hemant Karkare of the town’s anti-terrorism squad, in an ambush after leaving the hospital.
The second location of the attack was the commercial and residential complex of Nariman House, where a rabbi, his wife and six others, including five Israeli nationals, were slaughtered by the terrorists who had taken them hostage in the first place. Moshe, the two-year-old child of the rabbi couple, survived the attack. Then âBaby Mosheâ became the face of the innocent victims of brutal terrorism. CafÃ© LÃ©opold was the third target on November 26, followed by the Taj Mahal Hotel and Tower. Four terrorists led the attack at the cafe before storming the famous Taj Hotel, where they killed up to 31 people during a three-day siege. The Oberoi-Trident Hotel was also attacked on November 26, with another group of two terrorists entering almost the same time the other four entered the Taj.
The siege of the Oberoi-Trident Hotel finally came to an end on the evening of November 28, with up to 30 people killed in the horrific attack. The attack and seizure ended on November 29, 2008, when NSG secured the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. More than 160 people had been killed and hundreds were injured as the NSG commandos shot down the remaining terrorists who had entrenched themselves in the Taj Mahal Palace hotel in south Mumbai. After the attack, it was discovered that 10 terrorists had traveled to Mumbai from the coastal city of Karachi in Pakistan.
