Hybrid war refers to a type of conflict that encompasses both conventional military operations and unconventional tactics such as cyberattacks, propaganda, and political subversion. It is characterized by a mixture of military, economic, political, and psychological operations aimed at achieving strategic objectives. The term hybrid war is used to describe conflicts that are not easily categorizable as conventional wars, but that nonetheless pose significant security challenges.
