The use of targeted violence, while perhaps a more common occurrence than society at large may be aware of, is still a rarely employed act. This is then one of, if not the most predominant reasons targeted violence can be so difficult to predict, detect, deter, and even survive. The most vehement user of targeted violence in the modern era, Spain’s ETA (Euskadi ta Askatasuna), has only been known to have employed it on average once a year. Further, the ETA, as with other groups worldwide, has generally not focused these attacks on a specific type of individual, such as a judge or diplomat, but rather targeted a variety of victims.
