No cruise missiles have been fired by UK forces in Afghanistan or Iraq in the last five years. Cruise missiles have been fired into Libya. I am withholding details of the number of cruise missiles that have been fired, as the disclosure of this information would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the armed forces.
