Dear Ministry of Defence,

As you know, a “blind” or “blind munition” are the terms for a launched, fired or dropped weapon that does not function against the target and is left on the battlefield. I would like to know, please, the number of known or recorded "blind" munitions in Iraq and Syria following RAF airstrikes over these countries.

I would like, please, this data to be broken down by aircraft type responsible for the strike (e.g. Typhoon, Tornado and Reaper) and by month, beginning from September 2014 (Iraq) and December 2015 (Syria) up to the end of September 2019 if possible. Please include data up to the latest date possible while processing this request.

If any of this request is unclear or needing clarity, please do not hesitate to ask.

Yours faithfully,

Iain Overton
