The U.S. State Department has approved the sale of $295.6 million worth of military equipment to Iraq for artillery and infantry Kurdish Peshmerga units, a Pentagon agency said on Wednesday, according to Reuters.

The equipment requested by the Iraqi government would outfit two Peshmerga infantry brigades and two support artillery battalions, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in a statement.

Congress was notified of the approval on Tuesday, and the notice does not mean the sale has been concluded, the agency said.
