According to the report covering the period from the beginning of October until last week, there have been 228 terrorist attacks or attempted attacks. Thirty- seven percent of the terrorists ranged from 16 to 20 years old. A further 10% of those carrying out the attacks were minors, meaning that nearly half of the attackers were younger than 21 years old.

A third of the assailants were 21 to 25, and an additional 10% were 30 and older. The statistics further show that 24 women took part in attempted attacks, some 11% of all assailants. [ Source ]
