Practice Relating to Rule 85. The Use of Incendiary Weapons against Combatants
Section B. The use of incendiary weapons against combatants in particular
At the Preparatory Conference on the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons, Indonesia submitted a draft proposal, which developed the proposal submitted during the CDDH.
Indonesia proposed a prohibition of the use of incendiaries, except against “military objects other than personnel” and “against combatants holding positions in field fortifications such as bunkers and pillboxes where the use of alternate weapons will inevitably render more casualties”.
