The UK welcomes the release, on 15 October 2016, by the Joint Incidents Assessment Team of the outcomes of its initial investigation. It is important that the Coalition conducts thorough and conclusive investigations into incidents where it is alleged that International Humanitarian Law has been breached. The UK continues to believe that the Coalition has the best insight into its own military procedures and will be able to conduct the most thorough and conclusive investigations.
