Practice Relating to Rule 33. Personnel and Objects Involved in a Peacekeeping Mission
Germany’s Military Manual (1992) states:
When a United Nations’ force or mission performs functions of peacekeeping, observation or similar functions, each party to the conflict shall, if requested … take such measures as may be necessary to protect the force or mission while carrying out its duties … The protection of the force or mission shall always be ensured.
Germany’s Law Introducing the International Crimes Code (2002) punishes anyone who, in connection with an international or a non-international armed conflict,
directs an attack against personnel, installations, material, units or vehicles involved in a … peace-keeping mission in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, as long as they are entitled to the protection given to civilians or civilian objects under international humanitarian law.
In 1995, during a debate in the UN Security Council, Germany condemned attacks against UNPROFOR.
