Description: This convention supersedes the 1899 Hague Convention (II) with Respect to the Laws and Customs of War on Land and its annex: Regulations concerning the Laws and Customs of War on Land, and is intended to complete and explain the work of the First Peace Conference. The convention states that that parties must issue instructions to their armed land forces that are in conformity with the regulations. If a belligerent party or one of its soldiers violates the regulations, it is liable to pay compensation. The regulations consist of three sections: On Belligerents, Hostilities and Military Authority over Territory of the Hostile State. “The provisions of the two Conventions on land warfare, like most of the substantive provisions of the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907, are considered as embodying rules of customary international law. As such they are also binding on states which are not formally parties to them.” (ICRC, IHL Database).
