The July 2020 Kaltarus attacks were a series of co-ordinated terrorist attacks that took place on 24 July 2020 in Barbarus and Jomsgord Provinces, Kaltarus, Great Morstaybishlia. Beginning at 08:36, one Khadgar tank operated by terrorists alongside 37 terrorists shot and blew up the side of the Barbarus police headquarters building before committing a mass shooting. At 9:06 another tank and gunmen committed a second mass shooting on the Khauser police headquarters. Both mass shootings resulted in a standoff with police.

The attackers killed 67 civilians and police. Another 71 people were injured, 36 seriously. 67 of the attackers also died with two captured while the authorities continued to search for accomplices. The attacks were the deadliest in Great Morstaybishlia since the Auroran Imperial War. The eastern provinces of Kaltarus; Calthia, Laulia, Aurus, Barbarus, Jomsgord and Nocturne have been on high alert since.

Since the attacks, nobody has taken responsibility. Great Morstaybishlia, the UNAC and the NSTO are currently investigating.

In response to the attacks, an undefined state of emergency was declared across Great Morstaybishlia to help fight terrorism, which involved the banning of public demonstrations, and allowing the police to carry out searches without a warrant, put anyone under house arrest without trial and block websites that encouraged acts of terrorism. The aforementioned eastern provinces of Kaltarus were put on Black Alert with a curfew of 21:00, football matches and pubs were also closed and non-essential travel became prohibited.
