An advisory report for NATO urges governments against carrying out cyberstrikes on atomic energy plants and other key non-military infrastructure, the London Guardian reported on Monday.

“In order to avoid the release of dangerous forces and consequent severe losses among the civilian population, particular care must be taken during cyberattacks against works and installations containing dangerous forces, namely dams, dykes and nuclear electrical generating stations, as well as installations located in their vicinity,” according to 20 law specialists who collaborated with the International Committee of the Red Cross and the U.S. Cyber Command in writing the NATO handbook.
