Kurdish Peshmerga receives 54 Humvees

As part of an aid package to help Kurdish forces fight ISIS militants in Iraq, the US has transferred 54 Humvees to two Peshmerga brigades in Iraq, according to sources in Erbil. Other brigades are expected to be provided with the same military hardware to upgrade the Kurdish forces ahead of the anticipated Mosul offensive.

The US also promised a $415 million aid package to help Kurdish forces to cope with the economic crisis engulfed in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, after the central government in Baghdad refused to allocate funds.
