From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Iraultza, meaning Revolution in the Basque language, was a small Basque militant armed group of the Trotskyist tendency that may be remembered for being the only one of its kind not to have killed anyone except three of its own members, who died preparing an explosive device in the early 1990s. The group is also known for being described by the United Sates Government as "probably [having] committed more bombings against American business interests than any other European terrorist group".[1] Soon after, the group, which had been active for about a decade with small attacks of explosives that never aimed to cause any personal injuries, announced its dissolution. When the group was operational, it is estimated that it had approximately 20 members.[2]
