Peacekeeping Missions are operations carried out by the United Nations to maintain peace in various regions, based on three basic principles: "impartiality, consent of the parties, self-defense and non-use of force except in cases stipulated by the UN Charter". It was first implemented by the UN Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), which was established by the United Nations Security Council in 1948 to alleviate the Arab-Israeli conflicts.

The People's War Concept or the revolutionary people's war is the series of concepts used by the PKK / KCK terrorist organization to describe the "fourth strategic struggle period" in 2010. The aim here is to struggle to solve the Kurdish problem. They claim that the PKK / KCK structuring does not have the purpose of backing or restricting the state. What really matters is building a democratic society. For these reasons, they said that what has happened so far should be taken out of the warhead and evaluated under the name of social event. They state that they can reach their goals only with a struggle that includes seven dimensions. These; economic sphere, social sphere, legal sphere, political sphere, diplomatic sphere, cultural sphere and is the military field. The concept of people's war is a discourse used in cities to gain efficiency with ditches and self-government. Digging ditches is part of the PKK's strategy to bring war to cities. By doing this, they are trying to directly involve civilians in the war, and they want to cause anger and anger in society. They want to be recognized by declaring autonomy on the basis of self-government, sometimes on the basis of neighborhoods and districts.

Often used to mean the inclusion of psychological operations in wartime, the concept is basically a tactic of targeting minds to convince people that an idea they refuse to accept is plausible. The general tactics used during the war to make a ceasefire with various propaganda methods or to force an army to surrender are called Psychological Warfare (PsyWar) or Psychological Operations (PsyOps). This tactic, which is also used to neutral groups in times of war and friendly groups in times of peace, takes place through direct or indirect messages. Psychological warfare is usually the deliberate use of propaganda designed to influence the views, feelings, attitudes and behavior of the enemy or neutral groups, to influence the national policy and goals of the target audience.
