Amed JIHAD is mandatory for Muslims in self-defense (benign aggression).

Surah 8. Al-Anfal – The Spoils of War
[Author’s Note] This is the 8th Surah of the Qur’an. It has 75 verses. One of the great Revolutions that the exalted Messenger brought about, along with the Qur’an, was to ban all raids and ambushes. The negative incentive of tribal battles used to be the achievement of spoils of war. The Divine decree forbade it and allowed to pick up arms only for self-defense and to remove tyranny. The spoils of war can only be legitimate when believers have engaged in the defense of the Divine Order.

2:190 (All mankind should agree upon and mark their calendars for four months of peacetime, the 12th lunar month of Pilgrimage to the third month. However, following of the Divine System of Life will meet with harsh opposition.) So, fight according to God’s way those who wage war against you, but do not commit aggression. God does not love aggressors. [2:194, 2:217, 4:91, 9:5, 9:36, 22:39, 60:8. Four months (2:194) of no wars in the world will train people toward achieving restraint and permanent peace for all. Mu’tadeen = Transgressors = Aggressors = Those who cross limits]
