Islamic Republic of Iran
Practice Relating to Rule 111. Protection of the Wounded, Sick and Shipwrecked against Pillage and Ill-Treatment
The Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army Penal and Procedure Code (1939) states:
[A]nyone who robs an injured or ill … person within the domain of military-army operations will be sentenced to solitary imprisonment from two to 10 years. If she/he hurts the injured or ill military [person whilst] robbing him/her, she/he will be sentenced to capital punishment.
According to the Report on the Practice of the Islamic Republic of Iran, during the Iran–Iraq War, in reply to allegations that “angry [Iranian] mobs had killed parachuting Iraqis”, Iranian military authorities stated that pilots were under the control of the army and well treated.
The Iranian authorities repeatedly asked the Iranian population not to shoot at parachuting pilots and to capture them alive.
