“Jus in bello”

general discussion
The humanitarian principles provide guidance on how healthcare workers should act. But there are other participants (or “actors”) in this armed conflict too.

Do you know any treaties, laws, roles, duties, or principles which non-health ‘actors’ are expected to comply with during armed conflict? (Example: do not attack a person/vehicle bearing a white flag).
Think back through major historical violent conflicts you know about. Did any of them lead to the establishment of rules and responsibilities during wartime? “Jus in bello” is Latin for “law in war”.
