Practice Relating to Rule 145. Reprisals
Section E. Termination of reprisals as soon as the adversary complies again with the law
Canada’s LOAC Manual (1999) provides that a reprisal “must be terminated as soon as the original wrongdoer ceases the illegal actions”. 
Canada, The Law of Armed Conflict at the Operational and Tactical Level, Office of the Judge Advocate General, 1999, p. 15-2, § 14.
In another provision, the manual states:
Above all, reprisals are justifiable only to force an adversary to stop its illegal activity. If, for example, a party to an armed conflict commits a breach of law but follows that violation with an expression of regret and promise that it will not be repeated, and even takes steps to punish those responsible, then any action taken by another party to “redress” the situation cannot be justified as a lawful reprisal. 
Canada, The Law of Armed Conflict at the Operational and Tactical Level, Office of the Judge Advocate General, 1999, p. 15-2, § 17(b).
Canada’s LOAC Manual (2001) states in its chapter entitled “Preventative and enforcement measures and the role of protecting powers”:
3. Reprisal is not a retaliatory act or a simple act of vengeance. It must be proportionate to the original wrongdoing, and must be terminated as soon as the original wrongdoer ceases the illegal actions …
6. To qualify as a reprisal, an act must satisfy the following conditions:
b. It must be accomplished for the purpose of compelling the adversary to observe the LOAC.
Reprisals cannot be undertaken for revenge or punishment. They are directed against an adversary in order to induce compliance with the LOAC. Thus, reprisals serve as a law enforcement mechanism. Above all, reprisals are justifiable only to force an adversary to stop its illegal activity. If, for example, a party to an armed conflict commits a breach of law but follows that violation with an expression of regret and promise that it will not be repeated, and even takes steps to punish those responsible, then any action taken by another party to “redress” the situation cannot be justified as a lawful reprisal.
