Section A. The principle of distinction
Australia’s Defence Force Manual (1994) states that the law of armed conflict “establishes a requirement to distinguish between combatants and civilians, and between military objectives and civilian objects”. This requirement imposes obligations on all parties to a conflict to establish and maintain the distinction.”
