Hi! I do not know the meaning of this sentence:
"False flag attack"
Thanks in advance.
In layman's terms, the term means that one party carries out an act while disguising themselves as an entirely different party, which seems to stem from times of naval warfare, notably pirates, who would fly a countries flag in order to get close enough to an enemy to launch an effective attack.
Separate names with a comma.
