The Dutch government always supported the actions by the US – deep-state, which resulted in inhumane suffering and wars, like in Homs. The Netherlands has send so-called Non-Lethal-Aid to Syria, which turned out to be Lethal.

Parties are bound by the laws of war to the extent that such compliance does not interfere with achieving legitimate military goals. For example, they are obliged to make every effort to avoid damaging people and property not involved in combat or the war effort, but they are not guilty of a war crime if a bomb mistakenly or incidentally hits a residential area.
