George Kerevan – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Ministry of Defence

The below Parliamentary question was asked by George Kerevan on 2015-09-17.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many requests from local or coalition forces for RAF strike missions against targets in Iraq he has rejected because they were deemed to have been in breach of British rules of engagement or posed an unacceptable risk of civilian casualties.

Michael Fallon

None because all targets which are put to me for approval are rigorously assessed in advance for compliance with UK rules of engagement, UK law and international law.
