Practice Relating to Rule 31. Humanitarian Relief Personnel
Côte d’Ivoire’s Teaching Manual (2007) provides in Book III, Volume 1 (Instruction of first-year trainee officers):
III.2. Humanitarian aid
The armed forces of the two sides can prescribe technical arrangements for the transport through their territory, for example the routes the convoys must take or the detailed schedule. … Again, the two parties must guarantee the safety of these convoys in their territory. The personnel responsible for the relief supplies and the consignments must not be made the object of attacks.
In Book IV (Instruction of heads of division and company commanders), the Teaching Manual provides:
Aid societies, such as Red Cross or Red Crescent Societies, which, on their own initiative, collect and care for the wounded, sick and shipwrecked, must not be made the object of attack.
Personnel participating in aid activities must not be made the object of attack.
