The current Bachelor Thesis is an analysis of the legality from the perspective of the international law of two connecting aspects: the targeted killings and the unmanned aerial vehicles. The United States of America is one of the countries which have actively used unmanned aerial vehicles as a military tool in such countries as Yemen and Libya. Especially, the targeted killings by the unmanned aerial vehicles were performed under the presidency of Barack Obama when the number of such killings has notably increased in the comparison to his precedents. Thus, the author examined the aspects of the targeted killings and unmanned aerial vehicles from the International Humanitarian law and International Human Rights law, particularly focusing on the United Nations Charter, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Geneva Conventions, and other related to the issue legislation.
