Abstract: 

Terrorist attacks are one of the biggest challenges in the 21 st century. Each year, thousands of people around the world lose their lives due to terrorist attacks. Cities and metropolises are among the foremost spaces to organize and carry out terrorist attacks. In fact, today the vast majority of terrorist attacks are happening in big cities so that terrorism can be considered a primarily urban phenomenon. Iran and its big cities are exposed to terrorist attacks due to the regional characteristics and the existence of terrorist groups in conflict with the Islamic Republic of Iran. There are a number of potentially vulnerable sites against terrorist attacks in Shiraz metropolis such as vital infrastructure, public places and centers of political power. This paper has used analytical descriptive method and documentary and inductive approach. For this purpose, we first examined the locations of terrorist attacks in large cities in the world, and then analyzed the most important locations at risk of terrorist attacks (conventional and non-conventional) in nine municipality zones of Shiraz. The results showed that zones 1, 2 and 8 in Shiraz are the most important and vulnerable zones against terrorist attacks, due to their physical characteristics, population concentration, and multiplicity of infrastructures.
