As human rights expand, this is reflected in the provisions of international humanitarian law, which is one of the most important branches of international public law, because it is closely linked to human. It has thus far saved millions of people provided that they abide by this law and abide by its rules and provisions.This paper aims to identify and determine whether the provisions of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) are beneficial to the protection of the natural environment through the collection of previous studies and consideration of conferences, treaties and international conventions dealing with international humanitarian law.
