US fight against terrorism displaced about 59 million people

The war waged by the United States of America against global terrorism is estimated to have displaced about 59 million people since 2001, after the attack, claimed by Al Qaeda, to the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11 of that year.

The conclusions are reflected in the study released by Brown University. Between 37 and 59 million people in eight countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East “have fled their homes in the eight most violent wars the US military has launched or participated in since 2001”.

The report “Creating Refugees: Displacement Caused by the United States Post-9/11 Wars”, further shows that the number of refugees increased sharply in 2019.
