Description : ICRC website, 04.04.2018, News release : (excerpt) “MOSCOW (ICRC) – The changing nature of conflict is blurring the lines between military and civilian, ICRC President Peter Maurer said on Wednesday, noting the devastating consequences of this and other trends and urging more respect for international humanitarian law (IHL).
Addressing the Moscow Security Conference after visits to Syria, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, the Central African Republic, and more, Mr Maurer described the changing nature of conflict. Around the world, but especially in the Middle East, armed actors have become more numerous and more radical, the use of force has become increasingly disproportionate, more battles are fought in urban areas using explosive weapons in densely populated areas, and weapons have become easier to obtain.”
