Peshmerga Minister Mustafa Sayid Qadir recently told reporters about the value of the first shipment of gear that came last year. “The German weapons, especially the anti-tank Milan missiles have been effective in deciding the battle.”

US arms to Kurdish Peshmerga forces will continue to be routed through the central government in Baghdad, the State Department said.

“Our policy remains that all arms transfers must be coordinated via the sovereign central Government of Iraq,” State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters in a daily briefing on Monday.

United States Department of State spokesperson Jen Psaki said more than 3 million pounds of equipment in over 60 cargo flights had been sent for the Kurds. They included more than 15,000 hand grenades, nearly 40 million rounds of light and heavy machine gun ammunition, 18,000 assault rifles and 45,000 mortar rounds Psaki said.

“We have coordinated a coalition effort, including the Germans, to provide weapons,” Psaki explained. “This includes heavy weapons and other equipment, including mortars, T-62 tank rounds for their over 100 existing tanks, vehicles and counter-IED equipment,” she said.
