Practice Relating to Rule 8. Definition of Military Objectives
Kenya’s LOAC Manual (1997) states that military objectives are:
- the armed forces except medical service and religious personnel and objects
- the establishments, buildings and positions where armed forces or their material are located (e.g. positions, barracks, stores, concentration of troops).
- other objects:
- which by their nature, location, purpose or use make an effective contribution to military action
- whose total or partial destruction, capture or neutralization, in the circumstances ruling at the time, offers a definite military advantage.
