Answered on: 08 March 2018

The UK plays a leading role in the Global Coalition against Daesh.

Our military involvement in the Global Coalition is Operation SHADER. We do not disaggregate the costs of that operation between Iraq and Syria (the costs of military operations are published in the Ministry of Defence's Annual Accounts, available online).

In Syria, our military role in the Global Coalition is limited to air strikes to support partner forces on the ground. Since 2015, the UK launched 315 air strikes in Syria as part of the Coalition campaign.

We are also playing a leading role in the humanitarian response, including funding to stabilise areas liberated from Daesh. In October 2017, we announced a further £10 million to respond to displacement in North East Syria, including funding to remove mines.
