During recent armed conflicts, explosive weapons have been used on a massive scale in populated areas, killing and injuring thousands of civilians in countries including Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Afghanistan. Many of these people have been left injured or disabled with their lives and livelihoods completely ruined. It is our mission at Humanity & Inclusion to ensure that these innocent victims of conflict are not forgotten and to put an end to the indiscriminate bombing of towns and cities.

When explosive weapons are used in populated areas, a shocking 90% of casualties are civilians. These people are innocent victims of war - children, men and women who are going about their daily lives when these bombs strike. They end up traumatised, severely injured and many have to endure the loss of parents or loved ones. Here is just one account of the effects that these horrific weapons can have on the communities they hit.

In 2018, 32,110 civilians were killed or injured by explosive weapons and this shocking figure will only keep rising if we don’t put a stop to the bombing of civilians. At Humanity & Inclusion, we want to stop more innocent people being hurt, but we need your help to do so.

Civilians in countries such as Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Afghanistan have been particularly badly affected by explosive weapons. To hear the stories of some of the individuals in the most affected areas and how we at Humanity & Inclusion are trying to help them, have a look at some of the links below.

About the campaign

Stop Bombing Civilians is Humanity & Inclusion’s campaign to end the use of explosive weapons in populated areas.

Bombing civilians isn’t war, it’s a crime. These weapons rip through families, homes, and hospitals. They destroy people’s lives, their hopes, and their future.

We want to put an end to the bombing of civilians and stop innocent people from being injured and killed by these indiscriminate acts of violence.

What are we asking for?

Humanity & Inclusion is asking States to commit to an international declaration to stop using explosive weapons in urban warfare. This will protect civilians in conflicts now and in the future.

The UK has been present and engaged at the conferences and negotiations that have taken place so far to draft the declaration.

We need to ensure that the declaration wording specifically includes commitments to avoid the use of explosive weapons with wide area effects in populated areas, and to provide non-discriminatory assistance to the victims.
