ELEVEN MILITARY OCCUPATIONS
... an IAC [International Armed Conflict] includes any situation in which one state invades another and occupies it, even if there is no armed resistance at all. This is set down in Article 2 common to the four 1949 Geneva Conventions.

Other belligerent occupations that have been alleged include the occupation by the UK of the Falkland Islands/Malvinas (Argentina claims this as sovereign territory), of Tibet by China, and of the state of Hawaii by the USA. The War Report makes no determination as to whether belligerent occupation is occurring in these cases.
