This video series is an adapted version of an online training kit on the law of armed conflict designed for armed groups in the Middle East. It is part of the ICRC's training programs for weapon bearers, State and non-State, around the world as part of its mandate to protect and assist people affected by armed conflict and other situations of violence.
The videos first explain the responsibilities of commanders and individual soldiers. They also highlight some of the basic elements of the law of armed conflict, and specifically focus on the conduct of hostilities and on the protection afforded to civilians, civilian objects and other protected persons and objects.
These recordings use video game simulations to show how the rules and principles are applied in practice, as they convey the learner to live the realities of the current battles and emphasize the need to respect the laws of war.
