I wonder if involved be removed from the definition below, would the definition still remains the same in meaning?

I feel there is a nuance. The definition is as crystal clear as is. Removing involved leads to a nuance, which I cannot tell.

Thanks in advance

Without 'involved' the sentence might be insufficently precise. The 'people in a conflict' could be understood to mean everyone involved (taking part; fighting) and also everyone affected in some way e.g. wounded, prisoners of war, civilians in the war zone etc.
