Defense ministry spokesman Jens Flosdorff told a news conference in Berlin they were investigating, but could not verify them by any official finding.
“Contrary to media reports, we have no indications that Peshmerga used MILAN anti-tank rockets there,” Flosdorff said, adding that weapons supplied to the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) were only for the fight against Daesh, something which has also been assured by the Erbil government.
Flosdorff said claims on the misuse of German arms also appeared in the past and were taken seriously. He said contact had been made with both Iraq’s central government and with the KRG in Erbil to investigate.
Iraqi local media reported on Friday that Peshmerga used German weapons in clashes with government forces in Altun Kupri in Kirkuk, destroying a tank, killing two soldiers and wounding five others.
