For reference:

The Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilians in Time of War (1949) provides protection for civilian hospitals, even if they treat military personnel.

Article 18 of the Convention provides that “civilian hospitals organized to care for the wounded and sick, the sick and maternity cases, under no circumstances may it be the object of attack, but will always be respected and protected by the Parties to the conflict. States that are Parties to a conflict shall provide all civilian hospitals with certificates demonstrating that they are civilian hospitals”.

Article 19 states: “The protection to which civilian hospitals are entitled will not cease unless they are used to commit, outside their humanitarian duties, acts injurious to the enemy. Protection may, however, cease only after due warning has been given, appointing, in all appropriate cases, a reasonable period, and after such warning has remained disregarded”.

The fact that sick or wounded members of the armed forces are treated in these hospitalsor the presence of light weapons and ammunition seized from those combatants that have not yet been handed over to the competent service, will not be considered harmful acts to the enemy“.
