To ask Her Majesty's Government whether any armed groups are being protected by the Global Coalition Against Daesh in the Al Tanf enclave; if so, what are the ideological orientations of each of those groups; and whether any such groups have any connection to Daesh.
The sole purpose of the Global Coalition is to degrade and defeat Daesh. The Global Coalition does not and will not protect groups with any connection to Daesh. It is understood that the US provides support to local armed group Maghaweir al-Thowra in the Al Tanf Deconfliction Zone. It is not for the UK to comment on the nature or detail of the US' support.
