You quoted:
Protocol Additional to the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949, and
relating to the Protection of Victims of International Armed Conflicts
(Protocol I), 8 June 1977.

This is for the protection of victims in international armed conflicts,
in other words this applies to wars.

The breaches that you mention are all things that are banned in war.
That's what all those articles are about: *war* and not *terrorism*.
