To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made, if any, of the number of people serving or training with Daesh in Syria and Iraq who were formerly soldiers or civil servants under Saddam Hussein.
We have made no such assessment. However, a number of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant's senior leadership are assessed to be Iraqis who served within Saddam Hussein’s regime.
