Description : As the world becomes more urbanized, so, too, does armed conflict. Many of today's conflicts are fought in cities and other population centres. When war comes to town, millions suffer: currently, an estimated 50 million people around the world are bearing the brunt of urban warfare.
In this video, produced by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), experts from the fields of humanitarian protection and assistance, law and military operations explain why the use of heavy explosive weapons in populated areas is a deadly choice.
