Defence to reveal detail on air strikes


Defence will publish fortnightly reports on Australian air strikes in Syria and Iraq, including bombing targets and locations.

The decision comes after the US-led coalition released its civilian casualty report on Monday, which found at least 352 people had been killed by coalition air strikes since 2014.

"This decision comes after weighing the importance of reporting ADF air strikes in Iraq and Syria against the potential propaganda advantages it might provide Daesh and any risk to the safety of ADF personnel on operations," Defence said in a statement on Tuesday.
