Practice Relating to Rule 150. Reparation
In a memorandum issued in 1994 on “practical means to fully support international humanitarian law and apply its rules”, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Justice stated that a belligerent was “responsible for the acts committed by its armed forces’ personnel, and [obliged] to make up for these damages, and pay compensation for wrongful acts”.
According to the Report on the Practice of Kuwait, Kuwait has demanded compensation for the damage to its environment during the Gulf War. The report further states that it is Kuwait’s opinio juris
that States which cause damage to the environment are under a duty to remedy such damage.
