List of Weapons that are Banned from Modern Wars

President Abraham Lincoln was the first person who proposed change in laws of war, Lincoln witnessed the time of Napoleonic Wars, he was horrified by the destruction and loss inflicted by wars.

He was largely focused on introducing new laws that could limit warfare and its effects on soldiers and civilians. Finally, in 1863, he issued the set of instructions for all armies of the United States.

The code covered all major issues: Treatment with women, prisoners of war and captured people; that code was made by keeping all human values under consideration.

Despite those 150 years old control treaties, many powerful countries still invent and use banned weapons.

Here is the list of weapons that are still banned from warfare as a part of international law introduced by United Nations:
