What is the IHL?

International humanitarian law (IHL) (also commonly referred to as the law of war or the law of armed conflict) is the branch of international law applicable to armed conflicts. IHL restricts the methods and scope of warfare through a set of universal laws (treaties and customs) that limit the effects of armed conflict and that protect civilians and persons who are no longer participating in hostilities.
