star this property answer text <p>The UK is operating as part of a global coalition of over 60 countries - including Iraq, Arab nations, European partners and the US, to defeat ISIL. The UK is playing a leading role in the coalition, with around 800 personnel in the region helping to counter ISIL.</p><p>The UK have conducted the second highest number of strikes in Iraq, behind the US and is providing significant critical enablers in the form of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and air to air refuelling capabilities that few other nations possess. We are also providing eight Tornado GR4 Aircraft and a number of Reaper Unmanned Aerial Vehicles contributing to precision strike and ISR.</p><p>Within the coalition's training programme to build the capacity of Iraqi security forces, the UK is co-ordinating Coalition counter-IED (C-IED) training with a small planning team in Baghdad and some 30 military trainers based in Erbil. The UK has trained over 1,100 Iraqi forces in infantry skills and in the use of the UK-gifted heavy machine guns. As well as providing niche C-IED and Infantry Skills trainers, we have also trained 108 Peshmerga in our Protection of Civilians training course.</p>

Assad continues to defy the international community through his barbaric actions, including using artillery and barrel bombs against civilians, some containing chlorine.</p><p>The UK has been at the forefront of the response to the humanitarian crisis in Syria. A political transition as set out in the Geneva communique is more vital than ever. We will be working with the UN Special Envoy and others to help push forward a political process, helping create the right conditions on the ground by supporting the moderate opposition and putting Assad's regime under pressure.</p> more like this

In addition to the redundancy scheme our intimidation policy supports all staff, regardless of role or employment duration, who may be facing security risks as a result of their work with British Forces.</p><p>The UK is the only nation with a permanent team including trained investigation officers in country to investigate claims of intimidation. These experts thoroughly and professionally investigate all claims of intimidation and have provided support to over 200 former local staff including bespoke security advice and financial support for some 30 relocations within Afghanistan. We have not found an intimidation case where the threat is such that we need to relocate the local staff to the UK to make them safe. This intimidation policy is open-ended, and applies to all local staff regardless of date or duration of service.</p>
