Of these, 15 are duplicate entries, which means that some incidents will have been recorded on more than one occasion likely because of the incomplete nature of Non-Governmental Organisation and media reporting upon which the MOD relies to update the &quot;Tracker&quot;.</p><p>The MOD does not assess allegations of IHL violations. The Saudi-led Coalition is best placed to do this and does so through its Joint Incident Assessment Team.</p> more like this
