We have paused counter-Daesh military activities in Iraq to focus on protecting the Iraqi bases that host Coalition personnel, taking every precaution to ensure the safety of the British and Coalition personnel based in the region. The safety and security of personnel is of paramount importance and force protection measures and advice are under constant review.
