Practice Relating to Rule 8. Definition of Military Objectives
Section E. Lines and means of communication
Sweden’s IHL Manual (1991) states:
How and to what extent a given object can effectively contribute to the adversary’s military operations must be decided by the commander. This need not imply that the property in question is being used by the adversary for a given operation … It may even be a question of means of communication … that indirectly contribute to the adversary’s military operations.
