From the Document: "Protecting civilians is fundamental to our forces' professional military ethos and our National Defense Strategy. Our efforts to protect civilians are critical to defeating our adversaries and accomplishing missions, strengthening our relationships with allies and partners, and demonstrating our moral leadership. [...] In that spirit, under Secretary Esper's leadership and my direction as the official responsible for coordinating DoD policy related to civilian casualties, the Office of the Secretary of Defense is working with your staffs and others across the Department to develop a new DoD instruction on civilian casualties."
