Ibn Abbas on Jihad: Do not fight women, children, peaceful people

Al-Tabari reported: Ibn Abbas explained the saying of Allah Almighty, “Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress, for Allah does not love transgressors,” (2:190) saying, “Do not kill women, children, old men, or whoever comes to you with peace and he restrains his hand from fighting, for if you did so you would have certainly transgressed.”

عن الطبري عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ في قول الله تعالى وَقَاتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ وَلَا تَعْتَدُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِينَ يَقُولُ لَا تَقْتُلُوا النِّسَاءَ وَلَا الصِّبْيَانَ وَلَا الشَّيْخَ الْكَبِيرَ وَلَا مَنْ أَلْقَى إِلَيْكُمُ السَّلَمَ وَكَفَ يَدَهُ فَإِنْ فَعَلْتُمْ هَذَا فَقَدَ اعْتَدَيْتُمْ
