Practice Relating to Rule 54. Attacks against Objects Indispensable to the Survival of the Civilian Population
Section B. Attacks against objects used to sustain or support the adverse party
Burundi’s Regulations on International Humanitarian Law (2007) states:
Under what circumstances would objects indispensable for the survival of the civilian population be excluded from protection?
Such protection ceases:
- if they are only used for the sustenance of armed forces;
- if they are used in direct support of military action (but the civilian population would not be subjected to famine or forced to relocate [as a consequence]).
