Notes
1.
From the early nineteenth century, treaties and conventions were concluded and adopted that codified rules and regulations of war. These rules basically deal with the area of combat, the weapons that may be used in war, humanitarian considerations, protection of civilian property, protection of civilian fife, and prevention of the extension of war to neutral states.
2.
War crimes generally include offenses committed by the armed forces, including the heads of state, and entail punishment for the perpetrators. Most authorities believe that there are four categories of war crimes: violations of laws and customs of war; hostile military actions against civilian populations; espionage, destruction, and treason in time of war; and all kinds of plunder of property. Paragraph B of Article 6 of the Nuremberg Charter considers the second category as punishable crimes in international law.
3.
Article 44 of the Chicago Convention, while enumerating the objectives of the organization, emphasizes that international civil aviation shall be carried out throughout the world in an orderly and safe manner and that the safety of flights for international aviation shall be promoted.
