Turkey has insists that its forces cannot remain idle during the fight to drive Islamic State militants from the Iraqi city of Mosul. They have also confirmed that its troops have fired at positions held by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in a town near Mosul after receiving a request by Kurdish Peshmerga fighters for assistance.

Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said it might be necessary to take action because Iraq and the US had not kept their promises. Prime Minister announced on Sunday about the Turkey’s involvement in the military offensive near Bashiqa, a town east of Mosul. He said that the Kurdish Peshmerga requested Turkey’s assistance.

ISIL took control of Mosul in 2014. A major drive to remove the group from Mosul began last Monday.  Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are advancing on Bashiqa having launched a new operation on Sunday.
