WAAR-DUHOK:

The US House of Representatives, on Thursday, approved the Defense Department budget for the Fiscal Year 2019 (which starts in October).

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), as the Pentagon budget is formally known, includes $290 million in support for the Kurdish Peshmerga Forces.

The entire “Train and Equip” fund for Iraq is $850 million, with $560 million for Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) and the remainder for the Peshmerga, who will, thus, receive 34% of the total.

That figure is up from 28% of the FY 2018 appropriation for Iraq.
