Definition of attackee
: someone or something that is the victim or target of an attack : one that is attacked When it attacked someone, an article often included a rebuttal from that person at the story's end—no need to wait for a nasty letter from the attackee in the following month's issue. — Bob Betcher, Press Journal (Vero Beach, Florida), 2 Nov. 2001 This posture will usually cause the attacker to hold off long enough for the attackee to hurry back to its own territory. — Larry S. Thompson, Audubon Magazine, September 1985
