The German government will decide on Sunday what specific military aid it will send to Kurdish forces in Iraq to help them fight Islamic State militants in the north of the country, its foreign minister said on Wednesday. "We should be helping with certain supplies, according to our capabilities, so they can fight and prevent ISIS from taking over the whole region and creating a caliphate," Frank-Walter Steinmeier told a news conference during a visit to Prague. "The German government has not reached a decision yet today but I believe that a decision should be made on Sunday on concretely what should be supplied," said the German minister. In Prague, meanwhile, the Czech government approved supplying ammunition and hand grenades to Kurdish forces.
