The Iraqi Kurdistan Parliament has approved sending Kurdish Peshmerga forces to the Syrian town of Kobani, besieged by ISIS militants, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) said on its official website Thursday. According to the website, the parliament's decision made during an emergency meeting on Wednesday night, allows Iraqi Kurdistan President Masoud Barzani to send Peshmerga forces and advisors to the town on the Syria-Turkey border which Kurdish locals continue to defend against the ISIS. On Monday, US cargo jets and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq sent medical supplies, weapons and ammunition to Kobani as part of the Kurdistan Region's ongoing efforts to support Western Kurdistan, according to an official statement from Kurdistan Region Presidency. However, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized the airdrop of supplies at a news conference in Ankara on Wednesday saying the weapons sent were allegedly seized by ISIS militants. The Pentagon admitted one bundle of weapons drifted off course and into the hands of the ISIS fighters after the extremist group released a video on Tuesday showing off the hand grenades and other weapons and supplies. The decision also follows Turkey's decision to allow Peshmerga across its border to join the People's Protection Units (YPG) in fighting against the ISIS on Monday.
