I have been asked the below question about violence in Quran...............please educate all of us how should one interpret the below verse from Quran

From Quran 9:5, “Fight them and slay the pagans wherever you find them, beleaguer them and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war.”

If Islam is peace how does one explain this kind of violence?
