Practice Relating to Rule 11. Indiscriminate Attacks
The Report on the Practice of Rwanda states that indiscriminate attacks are prohibited according to the practice and the opinio juris
of Rwanda and considers that this prohibition is a norm of customary international law binding on all States.
In 2010, in its Comments on the Draft UN Mapping Report on the DRC (Democratic Republic of the Congo), Rwanda stated: “Paragraphs 219, 220 and 221 of The Draft Mapping Report allege that the RPA [Rwandan Patriotic Army] indiscriminately fired heavy weapons at the Mugunga refugee camp [in November 1996] … In the conduct of operations, the RPA … never fired any weapons into the camp.”
