    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia is delivering arms to Iraqi Kurdistan on a schedule that is approved and coordinated with Baghdad authorities, Russia's Ambassador to Iraq Ilya Morgunov said.

    "All issues regarding military deliveries to Iraq from the Russian side… are discussed with representatives of the federal Iraqi government in Baghdad or Moscow. The weapons are delivered to Iraqi customers as they are produced by Russian enterprises, in accordance with timelines outlined in contracts," Morgunov told RIA Novosti. "If we're talking about deliveries free of charge to Iraqi Kurdistan in order to strengthen the capacity of the Kurdish Peshmerga self-defense forces, this is done in coordination with the Iraqi government in Baghdad, where Russian planes arrive for customs procedures and to obtain consent to proceed to Erbil. The Kurds are primarily supplied with small and medium firearms and ammunition," he added.

    Russian companies could expand their presence in Iraqi Kurdistan and this matter was discussed at a meeting with the autonomous region's President Masoud Barzani and other top Kurdish officials, Russia's Ambassador said. "Meetings have been held with President Masoud Barzani, Prime Minister of the regional government Nechervan Barzani, the leader of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan and former President Jalal Talabani… Issues were discussed regarding delegation exchange in 2016 and expanding the work of Russian companies on the territory of Iraqi Kurdistan," Morgunov told RIA Novosti.

    Iraqi Kurdistan is a region in northern Iraq, which became autonomous in 2005, following the US invasion of Iraq and the adoption of a new constitution.

    yazidi statement on isis takeover of sinjar.

    peshmerga abandoned them




    nobody mocks them though. they are the heroes that everyone in europe and usa bleats about... despite the southern iraqi army and PMU doing 90% of the fighting against daesh.

    In February, the Islamic State jihadist group shot down an Iraqi Bell helicopter west of Baghdad, killing at least one person, while an Mi-17 crashed east of Kut due to a technical problem, killing nine.

    In October 2014, militants shot down a Bell 407 north of Baghdad, killing two crew, five days after an Mi-35 was shot down in the same area, while jihadists destroyed another helicopter on the ground earlier that year.

    An overloaded helicopter crashed after delivering aid to people besieged by IS on Mount Sinjar in August 2014, killing its pilot and injuring passengers,including a member of parliament.

    Lieutenant General Hassan Karim Khudayr was killed when a military helicopter crashed north of Baghdad before IS launched a sweeping offensive in June 2014, while Iraq also lost an Mi-17 to a sandstorm in July 2010, a crash that killed five.

    It crashed near Kut Airbase, the Iraqi Army Aviation's main base. It is very far from any ISIS threats, so it looks like it was a mechanical failure. Both pilots survived.

    M1A1 takes out ISIS vehicle at 2400 m

    Post  zarib on Thu Apr 07, 2016 3:59 am

    An Iraqi M1A1 takes out an ISIS vehicle (SVBIED?) at 2400 m. I am assuming it is at night since they are using thermal (?)

    Sorry, not sure if we can imbed Facebook videos, so I'll just post the link:
