Practice Relating to Rule 29. Medical Transports
Section A. Respect for and protection of medical transports
Hungary’s Military Manual (1992) instructs soldiers to respect and protect medical transports, whether by land, sea or air.
In 1992, during a debate in the UN Security Council on the situation in the former Yugoslavia, Hungary stated: “It goes without saying that the international community cannot disregard the responsibility of those who violate international humanitarian law, who order attacks on … ambulances … to mention only a few examples of criminal atrocities.”
