Practice Relating to Rule 14. Proportionality in Attack
Sierra Leone’s Instructor Manual (2007) states:
This seeks to balance the sometimes conflicting interests of military necessity with the requirements of humanity. It requires that a soldier, in carrying out his mission, does so without causing excessive damage to the civilian population or civilian objects.
It therefore requires an assessment of likely casualties, both military and civilian, and damage compared with the specific military advantage expected from the attack. For example, an attack on a military objective with few enemies located in a densely populated area should not be carried out if the probable damage to civilians is likely to exceed the military advantage to be gained from the attack.
… The aim is to avoid or at the very least minimize collateral damage.

, the grave breach of launching an indiscriminate attack affecting the civilian population or civilian objects in the knowledge that such attack will cause excessive loss of life, injury to civilians or damage to civilian objects, as defined in Article 57(2)(a)(iii) of the Protocol].
