Peshmerga forces' mission in Tal Afar battle is 'ineffectual' - MP

Peshmerga forces help the Iraqi forces in preventing ISIS terrorists' fleeing from Tal Afar, MP Majed Al Gharawi said Saturday.

 

He added that Peshmerga forces' mission in the battle of retaking Tal Afar from ISIS grip is ineffectual as the Joint Command Operation is mainly responsible for the commanding of all forces engaging in the battle.

The offensive to recapture Tal Afar from ISIS terrorists started on Saturday amid support from the US-led coalition.  It is expected that the battle for retaking Tal Afar from ISIS grip will last for few weeks as it is a big city.
