During decisive combat operations, the Spanish made a valuable contribution to the humanitarian efforts of the military coalition in Iraq through the early deployment of a marine contingent based around the Landing Platform Dock SPS Galicia, including medical, engineering and bomb disposal capabilities.
The Spanish Government have also announced a continuing commitment to Iraq, and will contribute a brigade headquarters and a battalion to the Polish-led multinational division.
