Practice Relating to Rule 84. The Protection of Civilians and Civilian Objects from the Effects of Incendiary Weapons
At the Preparatory Conference for the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons in 1979, during the debate on the second proposal made by Australia and the Netherlands, the Syrian Arab Republic criticized the proposal, stating that “in its present form, the proposal left serious doubts regarding the precautions taken to limit the incendiary effects and to avoid loss of human lives” and that “it had not been proved that napalm was more dangerous than other incendiary weapons”.
