30-06-2003 Article, International Review of the Red Cross, No. 850
Observing with great concern the highly sensitive and tense situation prevailing in the Gulf, the International Committee of the Red Cross sent in March 2003 a note verbale and a memorandum to the potential belligerents, in particular, the United States of America, the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Australia and Iraq. It reminded them that the rules of international humanitarian law must be respected by all the States involved in military operations should the increasing crisis lead to renewed armed hostilities.
