Practice Relating to Rule 109. Search for, Collection and Evacuation of the Wounded, Sick and Shipwrecked
Djibouti’s Disciplinary Regulations (1982) states: “Combatants must … collect … the wounded, sick and shipwrecked insofar as operational circumstances permit”.
Djibouti’s Manual on International Humanitarian Law (2004) states that “the sick and wounded must be collected and cared for.”
The manual also states with regard to “wounded enemy combatants”: “[C]ollect them [and] care for them”.
In 2010, in the History and Geography Textbook for 8th Grade, Djibouti’s Ministry of National Education and Higher Education, under the heading “Basic rules of IHL” and in a section on “Treatment”, stated: “Wounded, sick or shipwrecked enemy combatants shall be searched for [and] collected”.
