Beginning at sundown tonight through sundown tomorrow, observant Jews all over the world will fast and mourn the destruction of the First and Second Temples that occurred on the same day approximately 656 years apart.

But there were many more calamities that happened on the 9th of Av (Jewish calendar July/August) right up to and including the 21st century.
