Syria: Military Intervention

Question for Ministry of Defence

UIN 54038, tabled on 21 November 2016

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, if he will publish on a weekly basis information on Russian and Syrian air assets engaged in attacking civilian targets in Syria; if he will publish the identity of the officer in the chain of command under which those air assets operate; and if he will make such information available to his EU counterparts with responsibility for sanctions policy.

The information available to the UK Government on Syria originates from a variety of intelligence and other sources, which it would not be appropriate to publish. The UK will, however, with our US and EU allies, continue to seek means of highlighting the responsibilities of the Syrian Regime and Russia for the humanitarian crisis in Syria and on seeking means to resolve it, including through maintaining EU resolve on sanctions.
