ablative of means?

The sentence
Liberatatum et iura harum urbium artibus belli consrvavimus is translated by Benissimus in his Wheelock's answers as
We preserved the liberty and rights of these cities from the arts of war.

Could this not also be translated, by the arts of war ?

Probably should be, I will take a look at it later.
flebile nescio quid queritur lyra, flebile lingua murmurat exanimis, respondent flebile ripae
