Practice Relating to Rule 42. Works and Installations Containing Dangerous Forces
Section A. Attacks against works and installations containing dangerous forces and against military objectives located in their vicinity
Kenya’s LOAC Manual (1997) defines a work or installation containing dangerous forces as “a dam, a dyke or nuclear power plant whose attack and consequent destruction may cause the release of dangerous forces and thereby severe losses among the civilian population”.
The manual states:
Certain property and buildings must also not be attacked except where an order to the contrary has been given. This comprises … certain installations which contain particularly dangerous forces (dams, dykes and nuclear power plants).
