Interdiction is a military term for the act of delaying, disrupting, or destroying enemy forces or supplies en route to the battle area.[1][2] A distinction is often made between strategic and tactical interdiction. The former refers to operations whose effects are broad and long-term; tactical operations are designed to affect events rapidly and in a localized area.

The term, interdiction, is also used in criminology and law enforcement, such as in the U.S. War on Drugs and in immigration.[3]
