International humanitarian law is that branch of international law which proceed themselves as shield or safegurad of armed conflict by protecting persons who are not participating in hostilities, and by restricting and regulating the means and methods of warfare available to combatants.
The fundamental moto of international humanitarian law is roused by contemplations of humanity and the alleviation of human torment, so it includes a bunch of rules, set up by treaty or custom, that tries to ensure people and property/protests that are, or might be, affected by outfitted armed conflict and restricts the privileges of parties to contention to utilize

and balance humanitarian concerns and military necessity, and subjects warfare to the standard of the rule by restricting its dangerous impact and alleviating human misery.
