Practice Relating to Rule 5. Definition of Civilians
The Report on the Practice of Rwanda refers to a declaration by Rwanda’s Minister of Defence on 18 August 1997 in which he stated that government troops may only target enemies who carry arms and/or kill people. The report thus concludes, a contrario, that in an internal armed conflict civilians are defined as those persons who do not carry arms nor commit inhumane acts against the population in relation to the hostilities.
