According to a recent analysis by Action on Armed Violence (AOAV), the British Ministry of Defence (MoD) has given compensation for the deaths of at least 289 Afghan civilians killed and 240 injured during UK military operations between 2006 and 2013. This is the first official estimate of the number of civilians killed by British troops, despite the UK government’s efforts to conceal the scope of fatalities for years, including hiding the truth about the presence of internal records and emails uncovering official issues about the killing of innocent Afghans. The British government routinely says that 457 British soldiers have died and 616 have been seriously injured, but it has neglected to quantify Afghan casualties or provide an estimate of the overall damage caused by British operations in their longest deployment since World War II.
