On the evening of 14 July 2016, Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel, a Tunisian resident of France, deliberately drove a 19-tonne cargo truck into crowds celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, killing 85 people and injuring 202. Lahouaiej-Bouhlel also fired at police and civilians with a handgun. The attack ended when he was shot dead by police.

The incident has been described as the third major terrorist attack in France since January 2015, following the Île-de-France attacks in January 2015 and the Paris attacks in November 2015. On 16 July, Amaq News Agency, an online presence said to be affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), said Lahouaiej-Bouhlel "carried out the operation in response to calls to target nationals of states that are part of the coalition fighting the Islamic State".
