§ Lord Wallace of Saltaire
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many casualties have been suffered due to military action by SFOR and IFOR; and what losses in terms of killed and wounded have been suffered by each contributing state. [HL52]
§ The Minister of State, Ministry of Defence (Lord Gilbert)
Casualty figures for other nations contributing to IFOR/SFOR are not held centrally by MoD. However, we are not aware of any IFOR or SFOR soldiers having been killed as a result of military action. One Bosnian national has been killed and one injured as a result of action by SFOR troops to detain individuals indicted by the International War Crimes Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. A British soldier was injured by a shot fired by the indictee in the first of these incidents.
