The Royal Air Force harmed just one civilian among more than 4,000 enemy fighters during just over four years of airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, the Ministry of Defence has said.

The figures, provided by the MoD in response to a freedom of information request by the charity Action on Armed Violence (AOAV), show that of the 4,315 individuals targeted by British airstrikes from September 2014 to January this year, 4,013 (93%) were killed and 302 (7%) were wounded.
