Practice Relating to Rule 29. Medical Transports
Section A. Respect for and protection of medical transports
The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia’s Military Manual (1988) restates Article 19 of the 1949 Geneva Convention I and extends the protection of military medical transports to civilian medical transports.
In 1991, in a document entitled “Examples of violations of the rules of international law committed by the so-called armed forces of Slovenia”, the Ministry of Defence of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia included the following example: “Fire has been opened on medical vehicles in spite of their Red Cross signs.”
