Practice Relating to Rule 10. Civilian Objects’ Loss of Protection from Attack
New Zealand’s Military Manual (1992) provides:
Civilian vessels, aircraft, vehicles and buildings may be lawfully attacked if they contain combatant personnel or military equipment or supplies or are otherwise associated with combat activity inconsistent with their civilian status.
New Zealand’s Military Manual (1992) states: “If there is a substantial doubt concerning whether an object normally used for civilian purposes is, in the circumstances, a military objective, it shall be presumed not to be a military objective.”
