The question whether states can resort to force against terrorism in the territory of another state has been discussed and surveyed repeatedly. Since 1945 the governments have used force against terrorism, but they have always been criticized by the international community. Resort to force against terrorism has undergone some changes since the last 20 years. This practice according to self-defense doctrine has been justified and it can be assumed that it comprises a part in the policy of antiterrorism combats. The question of whether the Security Council is authorized to resort to force against terrorism has also been examined and in this respect, the United Nations charter has not given any concrete answer and we must interpret its provisions to find a solution. Recent research shows that over the past two decades, the United Nations Charter has been modified to the extent that it allows the resort to force against terrorism.
