Practice Relating to the Use of Prohibited Weapons
Mexico’s IHL Guidelines (2009), in a section entitled “Basic rules of conduct in armed conflict”, states: “Do not alter weapons or munitions to inflict greater suffering on the enemy.” 
Mexico, Cartilla de Derecho Internacional Humanitario, Ministry of National Defence, 2009, § 14(l).
In 2010, during a debate in the UN Security Council on the protection of civilians in armed conflict, Mexico stated: “Regarding the use of explosives, the fact that there is no specific ban on the use of certain weapons does not mean that those weapons are permitted.”
