Report: US to Give Air Support, Arms to Iraqi Kurds


Kurdish newspaper Rudaw is quoting an unnamed high-level American official as saying the United States has "offered the Kurds air support in their fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)."

Rudaw has been reliable on reports about the situation in Iraqi Kurdistan, and reported not only the air support, but other direct US involvement as well.

The official source who didn't want to be named said that the US would also provide the Kurdish Peshmerga with arms and military expertise.

The American offer is said to include humanitarian aid to be transported by air to the people of Shangal and Zumar who have been displaced as a result of fighting in their areas.
