nATO ADMIT THEY DELIBERATELY TARGETED NON-COMBATANTS IN LIBYA


Prof. Christian De Cock, Chief of NATO’s International Law Section ... emphasized that his unit interpreted international legal concepts broadly. “We analyzed the guidance on ‘direct participation’ in hostilities. If you participate then you are part of the conflict; we felt that nonmilitary groups were legitimate targets. We disagree in the idea that [someone] ceases to be part of the group when they are no longer engaging in conflict. [In fact] you are a legitimate target on a 24/7 basis in the conflict; that is how we interpreted the engagement of mercenaries and other individuals.”
