(MENAFN - Arab News) WASHINGTON: US defense officials say the Obama administration is considering launching a humanitarian relief operation for Shiite Turkmen in northern #Iraq who have been under siege for weeks by Islamic State militants.

The imperiled town of Amirli is about 105 miles (169 kilometers) north of Baghdad and just a few miles from Kurdish territory. About 12000 to 15000 people are estimated to have no access to food o water.


The United Nation's top representative in #Iraq earlier this week called for relief there.

Three US defense officials said a humanitarian mission is under consideration. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they could not discuss internal administration deliberations by name. It could be similar to the humanitarian airdrops of food and water to Iraq's Sinjar area earlier this month which included airstrikes.
