Practice Relating to Rule 42. Works and Installations Containing Dangerous Forces
According to the Report on the Practice of El Salvador, El Salvador deems itself bound by the 1977 Additional Protocol II and specifically by the prohibition on attacks targeting dams, dykes and nuclear electrical generating stations, even when these structures are military objectives. In the case of non-international armed conflicts, the report, on the basis of Article 15 of the 1977 Additional Protocol II, mentions the two main requirements for the prohibition of attacks on works or installations containing dangerous forces, namely the release of dangerous forces and the consequent severe losses among the civilian population.
