The November 19 attacks (also referred to as November 19, November 19th, or 11/19) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group ISIS on the United States, France, and Israel during the afternoon of Thursday, November 19, 2015. The attacks consisted of nuclear weapon detonations used to target urban centers, government institutions and symbolic landmarks.

ISIS agents, having bribed high-level members of the Pakistani ISI security service, were able to smuggle four ten-kiloton nuclear warheads into the United States, France, and Israel, by boat and truck. Two warheads were detonated simultaneously in Washington, D.C., targeting the Pentagon and Capitol Complex. Hundreds of congressmen, political leaders, and military officials were killed in the blasts, which also destroyed key U.S. governmental infrastructure and killed some 37,000 civilians in the capital city. Roughly twenty minutes later, a nuclear detonation in Tel Aviv, Israel, destroyed most of the infrastructure in the city, killing roughly 50,000 civilians and devastating the nation's finance and industry. Approximately eleven minutes after the Israeli attack, a nuclear explosion in Paris, France killed 80,000, demolishing symbolic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. In the midst of international panic and confusion, a nuclear detonation struck Midtown Manhattan ten minutes after the French attack, destroying the Empire Stat Building and killing nearly 270,000, being by far the largest single attack of the campaign, by absolute death toll. While hundreds of thousands were immediately killed by the explosions, hundreds of thousands more would perish in the hours and days following the attacks, from radiation poisoning, burns, and miscellaneous injuries sustained during the explosions. Nations struggled to evacuate survivors and provide medical relief, given the destruction of infrastructure, unprecedented demands for medical care, and general environment of disorder. In the United States, France, and Israel, refugee camps and trauma centres were established quickly following the attacks, often lacking electricity, running water, and basic medicines and medical equipment. Civilians fled major urban centres in fear of potential nuclear attacks, leading to widespread panic, disorder, and looting. Washington, D.C., New York, and Paris metropolitan areas were evacuated due to the danger of nuclear fallout. Israel, due to its small geographic size, faced a calamitous situation, with nuclear fallout spreading across the nation and threatening the health of its citizens.

National governments responded by declaring martial law and suspending normal democratic functions. The United States military has detained hundreds of thousands of civilians without trial or charge, to fight rising disorder, violence, and panic. Israel launched Operation Retribution, prosecuting unprecedented attacks and carpet bombing on Palestine that have killed over a hundred thousand civilians, while preventing Israeli citizens from fleeing the country due to the fallout; the nation faces the destruction of much of its economy and infrastructure and the ongoing hazards of radiation in its urban centres. An international coalition, the largest in history, has initiated an invasion of Iraq and Syria to defeat the Islamic State, launching unprecedented bombings of cities and towns held by ISIS with little regard for civilian casualties. The U.S. Military has also announced an invasion of Pakistan, having initiated airstrikes against military targets. In Europe, Syrian refugees have been interned, and widespread violence (judged by some to be "genoicidal") has been prosecuted against French, German, and British Muslims and South Asians by gangs and rogue police. In the U.S., there are calls to intern Arab and Muslim Americans. The attacks have caused over 400,000 deaths, 2 trillion USD in property damage, and potentially tens of trillions in economic costs.
