Abstract


International Humanitarian Law is a branch of law of nations or international law. That law governs relations between members of the international community, namely states. International law is supranational and its fundamental rules are binding on all states. Their goals are to maintain peace, to protect human being in a just order, and to promote social progress in order and to promote social progress in freedom1.

International Humanitarian Law is also called the law of armed conflict and previously known as the law of war. International humanitarian law seeks to mitigate the effects of war, first in that it limits the choice of means and methods of conducting military operations and secondly in that it obliges the belligerent to spare persons who do not or no longer participate in hostile actions.
