US to fund Peshmerga, deprive Iran-allied IMIS from military assistance

 

The US House of Representatives has passed a bill in which a total of $ 290 million from the Pentagon budget, has been dedicated to support the Kurdish Peshmerga forces.
The massive spending bill, known as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the initial version of which lacked specific mention of the Kurdish forces, was amended by Rep. Ralph Abraham (R.
