Dear Royal Air Force,
The BBC has reported that the MOD, in response to a request by Action on Armed Violence (AOV), that bombing raids by Typhoons (37%) Tornados (31%) and Reapers (32%) took place over Iraq and Syria between September 2014 and January 2019.
I have been approached by a charity for legal advice.
In order to give the proper advice I need further information, namely whether or not Depleted Uranium (DU) was used in any munition, shell or bomb in any of the raids carried out by your bombers and if so in what percentage of the total payload?
Kindly send your response to:
Abdul-Haq Al-Ani (Dr)

Sunbury on Thames
Please find attached a response to your recent FOI request, about depleted uranium on air munitions.
