The September 11 attacks, commonly known as 9/11, were a series of coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamist extremist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of September 11, 2001. Four commercial airplanes were hijacked by 19 terrorists. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were deliberately crashed into the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, causing both towers to collapse within hours. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon, the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense, in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was headed towards Washington, D.C., but passengers attempted to regain control from the hijackers, leading to its crash in a field in Pennsylvania.

The attacks resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people, including the passengers on the planes, workers in the buildings, and first responders. They caused significant destruction and had profound impacts on the United States and the world. The events of 9/11 led to major changes in U.S. foreign and domestic policy, including the initiation of the War on Terror, the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the implementation of extensive security measures within the country. The attacks also had lasting social and cultural effects, shaping the global landscape in the 21st century.
