Practice Relating to Rule 3. Definition of Combatants
On the basis of an interview with a high-ranking officer, the Report on the Practice of Jordan states:
Any soldier in the armed forces [of] a State is considered a combatant. The medical personnel and chaplains are exempted from this rule. These two categories do not have combatant status and they are not entitled to take part themselves in hostilities even if they are members [of] the armed forces.
