"Art. 48 Règle fondamentale
En vue d’assurer le respect et la protection de la population civile et des biens de caractère civil, les Parties au conflit doivent en tout temps faire la distinction entre la population civile et les combattants ainsi qu’entre les biens de caractère civil et les objectifs militaires et, par conséquent, ne diriger leurs opérations que contre des objectifs militaires.
Art. 49/3 Les dispositions de la présente Section s’appliquent à toute opération terrestre, aérienne ou navale pouvant affecter, sur terre, la population civile, les personnes civiles et les biens de caractère civil."

"Article 48.-Basic rule

Article 49/3. The provisions of this Section apply to any land, air or sea warfare which may affect the civilian population, individual civilians or civilian objects on land. They further apply to all attacks from the sea or from the air against objectives on land but do not otherwise affect the rules of international law applicable in armed conflict at sea or in the air."
