List of Terrorist Incidents

List Of Terrorist Incidents

The following is a list of non-state terrorist incidents that have not been carried out by a government or its forces (see state terrorism and state-sponsored terrorism). Assassinations are listed at List of assassinated people.

There is no single accepted definition of non-state terrorism in common use, so incidents listed here are restricted to those that:

  • Are believed to not have been state-sponsored.
  • Are either commonly called terrorism, or meet at least some of the commonly used criteria.
This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    An element of exaggeration clings to the popular judgment: great vices are made greater, great virtues greater also; interesting incidents are made more interesting, softer legends more soft.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    The terrorist and the policeman both come from the same basket. Revolution, legality—counter-moves in the same game; forms of idleness at bottom identical.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)
