Update from UK MoD for August 1st:

‘Wednesday 1 August – Tornados attacked a terrorist truck in northern Iraq…Support continues to be given by Royal Air Force and other coalition aircraft to the Iraqi security forces as they maintain their efforts to prevent Daesh elements re-establishing an operational presence in the country. A coalition surveillance aircraft identified a terrorist truck concealed under trees in a remote area of countryside, some 40 miles east-north-east of Tikrit. A flight of Tornado GR4s from RAF Akrotiri, supported by a Voyager air refuelling tanker, conducted a successful attack on the vehicle using a single Paveway IV guided bomb on Wednesday 1 August.’

[France reports that on August 1st, a patrol of two Rafale C Bombing Group 43″equipped with precision guided bombs, took off from the proposed air base (BAP) in Jordan to carry out a fire support mission including a planned strike aiming on production facilities of Daesh explosives in the Euphrates Valley in Syria. The strike aimed destroy a site used by the terrorist organization to make explosives and assemble suicide vehicles. The mission was conducted in coordination with coalition fighter jets. French aircraft dropped two precision bombs “AASM” (armament air- modular floor) of 250kg. The ammunition destroyed the building.]

‘Chammal : mission de frappe planifiée pour les Rafale de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie

Mise à jour : 10/08/2018
Le 1er août 2018, une patrouille de deux Rafale C du « Groupe de Bombardement 43 » équipés de bombes à guidage de précision, a décollé de la base aérienne projetée (BAP) en Jordanie pour réaliser une mission d’appui feu incluant une frappe planifiée visant des capacités de production d’explosifs de Daech dans la vallée de l’Euphrate en Syrie.

L’opération planifiée et ordonnée par le centre des opérations aériennes de la coalition, le CAOC de la base aérienne d’Al Udeid au Qatar, visait à détruire un site utilisé par l’organisation terroriste pour fabriquer des explosifs et assembler des véhicules suicides.

La mission a été réalisée en coordination avec des avions de combat de la coalition. Après qu’une reconnaissance préalable du site, réalisée par un drone allié, ait permis de s’assurer de l’absence de risque de dommages collatéraux, les aéronefs français ont procédé au tir de deux bombes de précision « AASM » (armement air-sol modulaire), de 250kg. Les munitions ont détruit le bâtiment, conformément aux effets militaires recherchés.

Il aura fallu trois ravitaillements et 4h30 de vol aux deux Rafale pour accomplir cette mission qui traduit la détermination des armées françaises à poursuivre la lutte pour défaire totalement l’organisation terroriste Daech.

La base aérienne projetée en Jordanie contribue au quotidien à la lutte contre Daech. Depuis sa création, près de 6000 sorties, plus de 1000 frappes et 25 000 heures de vol ont été réalisées par les aéronefs stationnés.

Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à l’OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.’

ACTIVITE DE LA FORCE

Formation au profit des forces de sécurité irakiennes

La Task Force Narvik continue de s’investir au profit des soldats de l’Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service (ICTS), unité d’élite de l’armée irakienne.
Initié début juillet, un stage « driver » est conduit conjointement par des instructeurs français et irakiens au profit de 40 soldats irakiens. Il a pour objectif principal l’apprentissage des savoir-faire indispensables au déplacement en convoi de véhicules en toute sécurité, dans des environnements variés. Particulièrement complexe, la réaction à des embuscades en milieu urbain est au cœur de cette formation qui s’appuie sur une instruction progressive et adaptée.
En complément des actions de formation déjà initiées, ce stage participe directement à la montée en puissance de l’ICTS.

Offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech en Syrie

En Syrie, les Forces Démocratiques Syrienne continuent leurs actions offensives contre les derniers territoires encore tenus par Daech, tout en poursuivant leurs actions de dépollution des zones conquises ces dernières semaines.

Poursuite des actions de sécurisation en Irak

Les opérations de sécurisation se poursuivent, face à des actions ponctuelles de combattants isolés de Daech aux moyens d’IED et d’attaque contre des infrastructures électriques. A l’occasion de ces opérations, les forces de sécurité irakiennes ont continué cette semaine de mettre à jour des caches de l’organisation terroriste contenant armes et IED, notamment à la frontière irako-syrienne.

ACTIVITE DE LA FORCE

Formation au profit des forces de sécurité irakiennes

La Task Force Narvik entre dans la phase finale d’une séquence de formation dense entamée fin juin, au profit de près de 200 soldats de l’Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service (ICTS) dans 5 domaines de spécialité différents.
La Task Force Monsabert poursuit ses activités de conseil et de formation au profit de la 6e Division, alors que celle-ci se prépare à participer à la sécurisation d’un important pèlerinage qui aura lieu le 10 août à Bagdad. Elle a notamment réalisé cette semaine des formations au profit d’une soixantaine d’instructeurs irakiens dans les domaines de la santé, du soutien médical, et du combat en localité.

Les bases aériennes en Jordanie et aux EAU en appui des opérations
Sur la semaine écoulée, les aéronefs de l’opération Chammal ont effectué 30 sorties aériennes en appui des forces locales engagées au sol (bilan du 1er au 7 août inclus). Lors de ces sorties 3 frappes ont été réalisées par les équipages de Rafale. Une frappe planifiée a été menée en Syrie, contre un site de l’organisation terroriste utilisé pour assembler des véhicules suicides. Deux frappes ont été réalisées en Irak en appui des opérations de sécurisation de l’armée irakienne, visant des positions de combattants de Daech équipés de pick-up.

Bilan total de l’action du pilier appui aérien depuis le 19/09/14 :

From French MoD on August 10th:

[France reports that on August 1st, a patrol of two Rafale C Bombing Group 43″equipped with precision guided bombs, took off from the proposed air base (BAP) in Jordan to carry out a fire support mission including a planned strike aiming on production facilities of Daesh explosives in the Euphrates Valley in Syria. The strike aimed destroy a site used by the terrorist organization to make explosives and assemble suicide vehicles. The mission was conducted in coordination with coalition fighter jets. French aircraft dropped two precision bombs “AASM” (armament air- modular floor) of 250kg. The ammunition destroyed the building.]

‘Chammal : mission de frappe planifiée pour les Rafale de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie

Mise à jour : 10/08/2018
Le 1er août 2018, une patrouille de deux Rafale C du « Groupe de Bombardement 43 » équipés de bombes à guidage de précision, a décollé de la base aérienne projetée (BAP) en Jordanie pour réaliser une mission d’appui feu incluant une frappe planifiée visant des capacités de production d’explosifs de Daech dans la vallée de l’Euphrate en Syrie.

L’opération planifiée et ordonnée par le centre des opérations aériennes de la coalition, le CAOC de la base aérienne d’Al Udeid au Qatar, visait à détruire un site utilisé par l’organisation terroriste pour fabriquer des explosifs et assembler des véhicules suicides.

La mission a été réalisée en coordination avec des avions de combat de la coalition. Après qu’une reconnaissance préalable du site, réalisée par un drone allié, ait permis de s’assurer de l’absence de risque de dommages collatéraux, les aéronefs français ont procédé au tir de deux bombes de précision « AASM » (armement air-sol modulaire), de 250kg. Les munitions ont détruit le bâtiment, conformément aux effets militaires recherchés.

Il aura fallu trois ravitaillements et 4h30 de vol aux deux Rafale pour accomplir cette mission qui traduit la détermination des armées françaises à poursuivre la lutte pour défaire totalement l’organisation terroriste Daech.

La base aérienne projetée en Jordanie contribue au quotidien à la lutte contre Daech. Depuis sa création, près de 6000 sorties, plus de 1000 frappes et 25 000 heures de vol ont été réalisées par les aéronefs stationnés.

Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à l’OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.’

Terrorists had occupied a large building in the desert, a number of miles to the west-north-west of Bayji. Once a coalition surveillance aircraft had checked the surrounding area for any signs of civilian presence, a pair of Tornados conducted an attack with Paveway bombs which demolished the building and also destroyed a vehicle used by the terrorists. A further terrorist was observed on foot close by after the attack, and was struck by a Brimstone missile.’

[‘In the fight against terrorist organization ISIS, Dutch F-16s supported ground troops during 10 missions over the Syrian province of Deir al Zour and the Iraqi province of Ninawa.’]

‘Weekoverzicht Defensieoperaties

Het Nederlandse patrouilleschip Zr. Ms. Friesland onderschepte in het Caribisch Gebied een verdacht bootje. 3 opvarenden zijn aangehouden en overgedragen aan de autoriteiten op Sint Maarten. Een overzicht van Defensieoperaties in de week van 15 tot 22 augustus 2018.

Een Dash-8 patrouillevliegtuig van de Kustwacht merkte de zogenoemde go fast op. Dat kwam omdat het langszij een schip lag en er mogelijk overdracht van drugs plaatsvond. Het bootje voer daarna dezelfde route terug. De gealarmeerde maritieme NH90-helikopter van de Friesland steeg op om de go fast te volgen. Omdat de bemanning van het bootje de stopsignalen van de heli negeerde, loste de boordschutter waarschuwingsschoten. Toen ook dat niet hielp, schakelde hij met gerichte schoten de buitenboordmotoren uit. Een boardingteam van de kustwacht voer met 2 snelle motorboten (FRISC’s) van de Friesland naar de go fast en hield de bemanning aan.

Aan boord van het bootje en op zee is tevergeefs gezocht naar drugs. De verdachten zijn daarom weer in vrijheid gesteld.

Dezelfde week is ook meer dan 400 kilo cocaïne vernietigd. De contrabande werd eerder gevonden door Zr. Ms. Friesland.

SITUATION MILITAIRE DU THEATRE

Offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech en Syrie

En Syrie, les forces démocratiques syriennes (FDS), après avoir repris cet été la poche de Dashisha, sont actuellement dans une phase de réorganisation avant de lancer leur offensive dans la moyenne vallée de l’Euphrate, tout en accompagnant, dans les régions libérées récemment, le retour d’une forme d’administration. L’objectif, pour les FDS, est de permettre le retour à la vie normale et d’éviter le retour de Daech dans ces zones.

Poursuite des actions de sécurisation en Irak

En Irak, si Daech a mené quelques attaques isolées cette semaine, la situation sécuritaire demeure relativement stable du fait de l’action des forces de sécurité irakiennes (FSI) qui allie opérations de sécurisation et actions de rétablissement des infrastructures essentielles au retour à la vie normale de la population.

ACTIVITE DE LA FORCE

Alors que la frégate de défense aérienne « Chevalier Paul » patrouille en Méditerranée orientale, la TF Wagram et les aéronefs déployés sur les bases de Jordanie et des Emirats arabes unis (EAU) ont poursuivi leurs missions d’appui à la coalition. Un Atlantique 2 basé en Jordanie renforce le dispositif. Le C135 ravitailleur basé aux EAU a quitté le théâtre le 29 août.

Les bases aériennes en Jordanie et aux Emirats arabes unis poursuivent leurs actions contre Daech au sein de la coalition.

Une patrouille de Rafale a frappé, le 6 août dernier, deux entrées de grottes dans la région d’Al Qaim en Irak où tentaient de se dissimuler des combattants de Daech. Parmi ces derniers il s’est avéré que se trouvaient deux cadres importants de l’organisation : le chef des opérations pour la région de l’Anbar ainsi que le responsable financier pour la même région qui ont été tous deux neutralisés.
Sur la semaine écoulée, les aéronefs de l’opération Chammal ont réalisé 26 sorties aériennes en appui des forces locales engagées au sol (bilan du 22 au 28 août inclus). Aucune frappe n’a été réalisée.

From French MoD on September 7th:

[France report that on Aug 31st,  two Rafales struck  two caches of ISIS arms in the Euphrates Valley. It took more than six hours of flight to the Rafale patrol and three air refueling to accomplish this mission.]

‘Chammal : destruction de caches d’armes de Daech

Mise à jour : 07/09/2018

Le 31 août 2018, deux Rafale de la base aérienne projetée (BAP) en Jordanie ont de nouveau frappé Daech lors d’une mission de Close Air Support (CAS – appui aérien rapproché), en Syrie.

Comme quasiment tous les jours depuis le début de l’opération Chammal, les aéronefs du « Groupe de bombardement 43 » ont décollé, le 31 août, de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie pour lutter contre Daech depuis le ciel syro-irakien. Cette mission s’est conclue par la réalisation d’une frappe sur deux caches d’armes dans la vallée de l’Euphrate, qui a permis de poursuivre la réduction du potentiel militaire ennemi.

Les pilotes des Rafale ont procédé au tir d’armements de précision qui ont détruit leurs objectifs. Afin de mener à bien cette mission en toute sécurité, ces frappes ont été précédées d’une reconnaissance du site en coordination avec un drone de la coalition et ont fait l’objet d’un dialogue constant avec un contrôleur aérien avancé en charge de désigner l’objectif aux pilotes.

Il a fallu plus de six heures de vol à la patrouille de Rafale et trois ravitaillements en vol pour accomplir cette mission qui s’inscrivait dans le cadre de la préparation de l’offensive des forces démocratiques syriennes contre les derniers réduits territoriaux de Daech en Syrie.

La base aérienne projetée en Jordanie contribue au quotidien à la lutte contre Daech. Depuis sa création le 21 novembre 2014, près de 6 000 sorties et 26 000 heures de vol ont été réalisées par les aéronefs qui y sont stationnés.

Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.’

 

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve Monthly Civilian Casualty Report

 

SOUTHWEST ASIA– The Coalition has worked by, with and through partners since 2014 to defeat Daesh in designated parts of Iraq and Syria, liberating nearly 8 million Iraqis and Syrians from Daesh’s brutal rule and reducing its control of territory to approximately one percent of what it previously held.

We continue to employ thorough and deliberate targeting and strike processes to minimize the impact of our operations on civilian populations and infrastructure. This process includes thorough review and vetting of each target package prior to a strike, and another review after that strike. Our regular strike reports make our activities publicly accessible, and our monthly publication of civilian casualty reports makes our civilian casualty assessments similarly accessible to the public.

As we have demonstrated, we are willing to consider new civilian casualty allegations as well as new or compelling evidence on past allegations to establish accountability based on the best available evidence.

The Coalition conducted a total of 29,920 strikes between August 2014 and end of July 2018. During this period, based on information available, CJTF-OIR assesses at least 1061 civilians have been unintentionally killed by Coalition strikes since the start of Operation Inherent Resolve.

In the month of July, CJTF-OIR carried over 232* open reports from previous months and received two new reports. The assessment of 18 civilian casualty reports has been completed. Three reports were determined to be credible, resulting in two unintentional civilian deaths, while 15 were assessed to be non-credible. A total of 216 reports are still open.

Credible Reports– In each of three incidents, the investigation assessed that although all feasible precautions were taken and the decision to strike complied with the law of armed conflict, unintended civilian casualties regrettably occurred.

1. July 4, 2017, near Raqqah, Syria, via Airwars report. During a strike on Daesh fighting positions and Daesh VBIED facility, one civilian was unintentionally killed.

2. February 9, 2018, near al-Bahrah village, Syria, via self-report. During a strike on Daesh-held building, one civilian was unintentionally killed as a motorcycle entered the impact area moments before the strike.

3. June 13, 2018, near Abu Kamal, Syria, via self-report. During a strike on Daesh supply route, one civilian was unintentionally injured.

Non Credible Reports–After a thorough review of the facts and circumstances of each civilian casualty report, CJTF-OIR assessed the following 15 reports as non-credible. At this time there is insufficient information to assess that, more likely than not, a Coalition strike resulted in civilian casualties.

1. January 7, 2017, near west Mosul, Iraq, via Airwars report. After a review of available information and strike video it was assessed that there is insufficient evidence to find civilians were harmed in this strike.
