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.

  • Are believed to not have been state-sponsored.
  • Are either commonly called terrorism, or meet at least some of the commonly used criteria.
