Kurdish Peshmerga forces are expected to take part in a planned U.S.-backed Iraqi military offensive to oust Islamic State from Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city and the last urban center still under IS control in Iraq after a series of government offensives to reverse the jihadists' lightning seizure of territory in 2014.

Since the last summer, Kurdish Peshmerga forces have made major gains near Mosul, capturing a dozen villages from ISIL.

‘‘The coalition forces will be supporting our troops on various levels, including consultation, training, logistic assistance and air support. I’d like to assert that there are no foreign combat forces on Iraqi soil fighting ISIL only the Iraqi security troops whom they fight to drive ISIL out of Iraqi territories,” announced Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

A about 10,000 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are expected to participate in the battles that will take place in northern and eastern axes of Nineveh plain.
