Transcript of Attack on the World Trade Centers (1993)

What Happened
Happened on February 26, 1993
A truck bomb was detonated below the North Tower of the World Trade Center in the parking garage
The plan was to knock down the entire North Tower, causing it to crash into and knock over the South Tower, but this plan failed
Attack on the World Trade Centers (1993)

Why It Happened
Yousef claimed that he bombed the World Trade Center in order to avenge Palestinian people who had suffered at the hands of Israel, which is aided by the U.S.
Yousef also said that if the demands were not met, this would only be the first of many terrorist attacks
The Bombers
Of the seven people involved in the attack, six were convicted on charges of conspiracy, explosive destruction of property, and interstate transportation of explosives
They were caught when they tried to get the deposit back for the rented van used in the bombing
One of the men, Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, was also involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks
Effects
6 people were killed and over 1,000 people were injured, and 50,000 were evacuated as a result of the bombings
This led the World Trade Center to increase their security and improve evacuation procedures (which helped during 9/11)
Who Did It
The main person who planned this attack, Razmi Yousef, mailed letters to different New York newspapers a day before the attack
The letters stated Yousef's three demands-
1.)U.S. must end all aid to Israel
2.)U.S. must end all diplomatic relations with Israel
3.)The U.S. ends interference with all Middle Eastern countries' interior affairs
