Practice Relating to Rule 1. The Principle of Distinction between Civilians and Combatants
Section B. Attacks against combatants
The Central African Republic’s Instructor’s Manual (1999) states in Volume 1 (Basic and team leader instruction): “Combatants must: … fight only other combatants”.
In Volume 2 (Instruction for group and patrol leaders), the manual states: “In an international or non-international armed conflict, as a soldier you
must display the following conducts and attitudes: … Fight only the adversary”.
(emphasis in original)
In Volume 3 (Instruction for non-commissioned officers studying for the level 1 and 2 certificates and for future officers of the criminal police), the manual states that “attacking combatants and soldiers is allowed”.
