MOSCOW (Sputnik) Kurdish peshmerga fighters do not cooperate with Turkish forces in the ongoing operation to liberate the Iraqi city of Mosul from the Daesh, peshmerga spokesman Brig. Gen. Jabbar Yawar told Sputnik on Monday.

"There is no coordination between the Peshmerga ministry and the Turkish forces, or troops from other regional states, we coordinate only with Iraqi federal forces and the command of the international coalition," Yawar said.

Yawar dismissed claims made by Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildrim on Sunday regarding the alleged Turkish artillery support of the anti-Daesh operation in Mosul.

"There is no place for Turkish troops in the Mosul operation," he pointed out.

On October 17, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced the start of a military operation to retake Mosul from the Islamic State, a jihadist group outlawed in Russia and a number of other states.

According to local media, about 30,000 Iraqi soldiers and 4,000 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters are taking part in the operation, backed by airstrikes carried out by the US-led international coalition.
