?️ 26/11 India remembers terror victims on 10th anniversary of Mumbai attacks
Today 10 years ago, on November 26, 2008, 10 heavily armed Muslim terrorists sailed from Pakistan, landed on the Mumbai coastline and attacked the country’s financial and entertainment hub, murdering 166 people, including 6 at the Chabad house and 6 American citizens in a series of 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks.
Throughout the terror attacks, the focus was Hotel Taj. The terrorists also attacked Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus ‘CST’ railway station.
The U.S. on Sunday offered up to $5 million for information about the terrorists who unleashed terror in India’s largest city 10 years ago.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the reward in a statement, calling for justice for the families of the victims in Mumbai.
“It is an affront to the families of the victims that, after ten years, those who planned the Mumbai attack have still not been convicted for their involvement,” Pompeo said.
“We call upon all countries, particularly Pakistan, to uphold their UN Security Council obligations to implement sanctions against the terrorists responsible for this atrocity, including Lashkar-e-Tayyiba and its affiliates.”
Pompeo added the U.S. stood with the friends and family of those who “were lost in this act of barbarism, including six American citizens. The barbarity of 26/11 shocked the entire world.”
In the 2008 attack, six people, including Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka—who ran the Mumbai Chabad Jewish outreach center—were killed when four terrorists entered the premises and murdered any Jews they found inside. Their infant son, Moshe, escaped in the arms of his nanny, Sandra Samuel, who is currently living in Israel.
