Practice Relating to Rule 12. Definition of Indiscriminate Attacks
At the CDDH, the German Democratic Republic stated:
The prohibition of indiscriminate attacks or of attacks which employed methods or means of combat that could not be directed at a specific military objective was of the utmost importance, since it re-established the priority of humanitarian principles over the uncontrolled development and barbarous use of highly sophisticated weapons and means of warfare, which from the outset disregarded the fundamental rights of the human being.
