Practice Relating to Rule 111. Protection of the Wounded, Sick and Shipwrecked against Pillage and Ill-Treatment
Djibouti’s Disciplinary Regulations (1982) states:
It is prohibited for combatants to:
- despoil the … wounded;
- commit violence to the life and person of the wounded, sick [and] shipwrecked.
In 2011, in the History and Geography Textbook for 9th Grade, Djibouti’s Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training, under the heading “Ethics of Debne warriors” [inhabitants of the Dikhil region in Djibouti], stated: “Avoid any humiliation of a wounded enemy … apart from taking from him … his gun, spear or ammunition.”
