Iraq: Respecting International Humanitarian Law: Background information.

By Amnesty International, , Index number: MDE 14/041/2003

This document outlines the obligations of all parties involved in the war in Iraq. Amnesty International seeks assurances from all parties that they will do their utmost to comply with their obligations under international human rights and humanitarian law. The need for these assurances is based on their past conduct in conflict and their interpretations of relevant law which sometimes fall short of what AI is demanding.
