Gulf War

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 9 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many British service personnel were (a) injured and (b) killed by friendly fire during the 1990-91 Gulf War. (241264)

Information on casualties has only been centrally compiled since 2001 and it is therefore not possible to identify UK Service personnel injured during the Gulf War 1990-91 without incurring disproportionate cost.

During the 1990-91 Gulf War, nine UK Service personnel died as a result of friendly fire.
