Today, on the International Day of Remembrance of and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism, Belgium pause to remember and honour the lives lost or forever tragically derailed by acts of terrorism.

The Nation took a stand by with the survivors, families, and communities in pain and all those affected by these egregious acts of violence. We pay tribute to their endurance and resilience.

On July 25 2023, justice was served for the victims of the Brussels terrorist attacks. Six men were found guilty of terrorist murder and attempted murder for their involvement in the attacks on Brussels Airport and a metro station, killing 32 people on March 22, 2016.

The day draws attention to victims of terrorism, their needs and rights, and urges that assistance exists to meet their needs and concrete steps taken to fulfil their requests.

Furthermore, the day highlights the importance of preventive actions, including investment to counter the causes. Preventing terrorism is fundamental to reducing victimisation.

In recognition of the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism, The Belgium Government proudly reaffirm its mission to commemorate, educate, inspire, and ensure new generations, its victims, heroes, stories, or lessons.

At last, the Government of Belgium urged people to stand against terrorism and work towards a world where peace, security, and justice prevail.
