Summary/Abstract: The term "terrorism" is derived from the word "terror", "terrorist act", which is a word of Latin origin and means fear, horror. In the 1956 political dictionary, terror is the most acute form of struggle against a violent political opponent, including the physical destruction of the class adversary and the organization of political killings. Although it does not have a legal definition of the concept, it can be defined as a socially dangerous act in which force or threat is used to achieve certain political purposes.
