Practice Relating to Rule 24. Removal of Civilians and Civilian Objects from the Vicinity of Military Objectives
The Report on the Practice of Jordan refers to the legal obligation to remove endangered civilian persons and objects from the vicinity of military targets. It gives the example of the evacuation of civilians from a dangerous zone (though not a military objective) when in 1968 Jordan ordered the evacuation of civilians who had fled the West Bank in 1967 and lived in areas between Jordan and Israel. The evacuation was aimed at protecting the civilians from intensive military operations.
