Practice Relating to Rule 38. Attacks against Cultural Property
Chad’s Instructor’s Manual (2006) states that cultural property must be protected.
The manual also states that “Specially protected property must not become military objectives … or be attacked.”
The manual also states that “places of worship” must not be attacked.
The manual further states that attacks on “cultural property” are a grave breach of the 1977 Additional Protocol I and thus a war crime.
