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 1978, Indonesia submitted a draft proposal, which developed the proposal it had submitted during the CDDH.
The proposal prohibited the use of incendiaries, except against
military objects other than personnel, provided that these objects are not within civilian population centres and against combatants holding positions in field fortifications such as bunkers and pillboxes where the use of alternate weapons will inevitably render more casualties.
