A war between factions of the same country; there are five criteria for international recognition of this status: the contestants must control territory, have a functioning government, enjoy some foreign recognition, have identifiable regular armed forces, and engage in major military operations.

or in simple words,

A violent conflict between opposing groups within a country that becomes so intense that it appears like a war.
