Up to 2011, the net additional costs of operations in Iraq were £343 million in 2009-10 and £95 million in 2010-11. From 2014, the UK has supported operations to counter Daesh in Iraq and Syria. The net additional costs of these operations, which we do not separate due to their inter-related nature, were £21.9 million in 2014-15 and £216.9 million in 2015-16. Information for 2016-17 will be reported in the Department's Annual Report and Accounts.
