The safety of military personnel on operations and UK assets in the Middle East is of great importance to Her Majesty's Government, which has a duty to protect sensitive information the release of which could jeopardise UK security. It is therefore Ministry of Defence, and wider Government, policy to not comment on or disclose details of operational movements, including the details which you have requested.
