Practice Relating to Rule 110. Treatment and Care of the Wounded, Sick and Shipwrecked
Argentina’s Law of War Manual (1969) provides: “Appeal can be made to the civilian population for the … care of the wounded and sick”.
Argentina’s Law of War Manual (1989) refers to Article 10 of the 1977 Additional Protocol I and Article 7 of the 1977 Additional Protocol II and states:
In all circumstances, the wounded, sick and shipwrecked of either party shall be respected, protected … and shall receive, to the fullest extent practicable and with the least possible delay, appropriate medical care.
In the Military Junta case
in 1985, Argentina’s National Court of Appeals established that, in a situation of internal violence, wounded persons should receive adequate treatment.
