Practice Relating to Rule 28. Medical Units
According to the Report on the Practice of Angola, few violations of the rules found in the 1977 Additional Protocols I and II affording protection to the wounded and the sick were recorded in the conflict in Angola between 1975 and 1992. However, after the 1992 election and the resumption of hostilities, attacks on medical installations were more frequent. On the basis of eye-witness accounts, the report provides the following examples: the UNITA (União Nacional para Independência Total de Angola) hospital in Luanda was attacked by government forces and the hospitals of Capanda and Laluquemse were attacked by UNITA in 1992.
