Expert analysts examine data from every UK strike to assess its effect with one of their priorities being to highlight any possible indications of civilian casualties or collateral damage. Information on potential civilian casualties reported to the Ministry of Defence by external parties is also assessed by the Department. The number of staff involved will vary depending on the circumstances of each case. The costs to the Department are not recorded separately.
