International Military Interventions Iraq

It is believed that the Netherlands -as a member of the US-led international coalition - was involved in airstrikes in January 2015 on an ISIS convoy near Mosul that left civilian casualties. In June 2015 the Dutch military bombed an ISIS ammunition factory in the Iraqi town of Hawija. The explosion that followed was far bigger than anticipated and resulted in at least seventy civilian casualties. A number of the victims of these combat actions now seek to establish the legal responsibility of The Netherlands for the damages inflicted on them.
