- Weapons Germany to Kurdish fighters in Iraq resulted in the fight against Islamic State are against the agreements resold by the peshmerga. According to research by the broadcasters NDR and WDR.

Reporters saw at an arms market in the mountains near the Kurdish capital Erbil G3 rifles with serial numbers and letters referring to the German army. In the city of Sulaimaniya were weapons in the original German army packing in a shop window.

The German parliament after lengthy discussions agreed with arms shipments to the Kurds. Argument of the opponents was among other things that there is no guarantee that the weapons do not fall into the wrong hands. The army began in the summer of 2014 with the delivery of old, discarded rifles and pistols. Since then, some transported tens of thousands of rifles, pistols and ammunition to Iraq.
