The dynamics of terror strategies by Hezbollah and Hamas in the Israel-palestine conflict

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Israel-Palestine conflict has been highlighted as one of the most violent and bloodiest protracted conflicts in the post World War II era. The emergence of militant groups like Hezbollah and Hamas has been said to have further exacerbated the conflict. The article examines the use of terror strategies by Hezbollah and Hamas in the Israel-Palestine conflict. For conceptual clarity, the article starts by providing a working definition on what is commonly known as 'acts of terror ' or terrorism. This is followed by a substantial discussion on the formation of these groups, their roles in the conflict dynamics and the use of terror strategies to pursue their military and political aims. The article also examines Israel's responses to the acts of terror against them, and its justifications for those reactions.
