Mr. Donald Trump team should respond immediately publish the proposed new rules or new plan about drone attack in conventional war zone.
The report said that the revised rules scrap the Obama-era requirement that anyone targeted for attack outside of what the US calls “areas of active hostilities” must pose a “continuing, imminent threat” to American lives. This change gives US forces greater latitude to attack people it considers lower-level members of armed groups such as the Islamic State (also known as ISIS), al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and so-called “associated forces,” rather than primarily targeting these groups’ top echelons

Trump did not rescind the Obama administration’s requirement for “near-certainty” that no civilians would be killed or injured in a drone operation, the report said. But Human Rights Watch field research during the previous administration found that the US did not always follow this requirement during targeted killings.

The US contends that it can use military force anywhere against targeted groups without regard to whether its attacks take place in an area of active hostilities, arguing that it is engaged in an armed conflict without geographical boundaries with groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda. That interpretation is overly broad and dangerous.
The US says it killed as many as 3,100 people from 2009 to 2016 in drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and elsewhere, but some human rights groups argue that the figure is higher.
The US claims the airstrikes target members of terrorist groups, but according to local officials and witnesses, civilians have been the victims of the attacks in many cases.
