The report showed there has been one civilian casualty during the airstrikes against so-called Islamic State.
An MOD spokesperson said: “After every British airstrike we conduct detailed battle damage assessment, which thoroughly examines the outcome of the strike against its target, be it Daesh fighters, weapons, or bases.
“This assessment also looks very carefully at whether or not there has been any civilian casualty or damage to civilian infrastructure.”
