Abstract: Terrorism is now an omnipresent menace that recognizes no international boundaries, respects no international laws and does not differentiate between combatants and non-combatants. Terrorism has many forms but the most dangerous manifestation of terrorism has been in the shape of Jehadi terrorism, which is a global phenomenon and has the resources and the will to attack targets around the globe. Terrorism does not follow conventions or rules applicable to conventional warfare but uses force with devastating affect through surrogates and dedicated adherents as witnessed during the events of 9/11. Hilke Tromp, well-known Dutch political scientist, believes that surrogate terrorism is a ?third world war which has assumed the completely unexpected form of? ?protracted? warfare by terrorist methods? Donald J. Hanle has called terrorism the newest face of warfare.
