The third plane crashed into the building of the Pentagon that hosts the American defense offices.
This led to the collapse of the western part of the Pentagon.
This incident was the most shocking moment which lived in my heart forever like a nightmare.
America has been considering any factor that can affect its success. A terrorist attack occurred on the eleventh of September, 2001 and hit the nation.
terrorists that had hijacked four planes (American Airlines Flight 11, United Airlines Flight 17, American Airlines Flight 77, and United Airlines Flight 93) aimed at crashing them into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in Washington DC (Posner 43).
The first plane crashed into the north tower of the building and the second crashed into the south one.At that time, Osama was under close guidance of Ayman al-Zawahiri, and helped him to be more radical.Consequently, Osama began releasing fatwas which were warnings to the Americans.Before the attacks, America and the world had run its usual activities. On September 9, there was the men’s final at the US Open Tennis Championship in New York.Many people converged in the Arthur Ashe Stadium to watch the final.The terrorist attacks killed approximately 2996 people including 227 civilians and 19 hijackers in the plane. They had never experienced such an attack that led to huge losses.About 343 firefighters and 72 law enforcement officers also died during the attacks (Berkin 32).This shows that America was quite peaceful before the attacks (Berkin 41).The development activities run as normal until the attack was experienced.After the attack was over, the police, the ambulance and the fire brigade arrived to help people.But after a while the police informed that another attack was taken place at 10.03 am near Shanks Ville, Pennsylvania, southeast of Pittsburgh. There were many injured people lying on stretchers and they were whining and sobbing.
