Peshmerga could participate in Mosul release operation: secretary general
The Secretary General of the Kurdish forces of Peshmerga Jabbar Yawar stated the Kurdish forces would possibly attend in the upcoming operation to liberate the Islamic State (IS)-held city of Mosul in northern Iraq.

He further stated the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Ministry of Peshmerga is continuing efforts to unite the Kurdish forces and form a united force for the region, adding that the Peshmerga forces need heavy weapons and more anti-IS coalition military aids to fight against the group and defeat it.

The IS is controlling a large part of Iraq and Syria.

Yawar also said the Iraqi central government has not sent the salaries of the Kurdish forces since 2003 but denied Baghdad has stated paying the Kurdish forces depends on the participation in the operation to liberate Mosul.
