Protection of medical units and transports
    Article 11 -- Protection of medical units and transports

    1. Medical units and transports shall be respected and protected at all times and shall not be the object of attack.

    2. The protection to which medical units and transports are entitled shall not cease unless they are used to commit hostile acts, outside their humanitarian function. Protection may, however, cease only after a warning has been given setting, whenever appropriate, a reasonable time-limit, and after such warning has remained unheeded.
