Antiterrorism is a term used to describe any effort to limit, oppose, or eradicate terrorist forces. Antiterrorism tactics include ways of detecting terrorist acts before they are committed (such as surveillance), identifying terrorist personnel from regular civilians, and displaying a show of force to discourage terrorist activities.

An example of an antiterrorist policy is Israel permitting its citizens to carry weapons. This has helped to cut down on terrorist attacks there.[1]
