Practice Relating to Rule 24. Removal of Civilians and Civilian Objects from the Vicinity of Military Objectives
Cameroon’s Instructor’s Manual (1992) provides:
On the approach of the enemy or of combat towards zones of civilian habitation, the civilian population must be evacuated towards zones free of combat. The means and organization of this evacuation are the responsibility of the national civilian and military authorities. All persons must be evacuated, with priority given to women and children.
Cameroon’s Instructor’s Manual (2006) states: “At the approach of the enemy or in the case of combat in residential areas, the civilian population must be evacuated to zones outside the area of combat.”
