The article analyses the practice of targetted killings, that is, the use of lehtal force by a subject of international law against particular persons which are not detained by people attacking them. The article evaluates the use of this practice in the international or non-international armed conflict and explores whehter this practice does not infringe the principles of distinction and proportionality of international humanitarian law. It is necessary to ensure in the context of the principle of distinction that the targetted killings are effected only against persons taking direct part in the hostilities. The principle of proportionality requires that the damage to civilians and civilian objects is to be avoided during the practice of targetted killings.
