Five hundred Iraqi Turkmen are receiving military training in preparation for Mosul’s military operation against ISIL, an Iraqi MP said Thursday.

Aydin Maruf of the Iraqi Turkmen Front told that there are efforts to increase the number of the Turkmen fighters, saying they would have an important role in the “liberation” of Mosul and Tal Afar.

Meanwhile, a written statement made by Iraqi Sunni MP Salim al-Jabouri, has called for the arming of all Sunni tribes to participate in the military operation to take Tikrit alongside Iraqi security forces and the Shiite militia of al-Hashid al-Shaabi.
