LONDON: Britain on Tuesday said it would transport military supplies from other states to Kurdish forces battling jihadist militants in northern Iraq, and would send Chinook helicopters to assist its aid mission.

"We are sending a small number of Chinook helicopters to the region for use if we decide we need further humanitarian relief options," said a statement from Prime Minister David Cameron's office.

"We have also agreed to transport from other contributing states some critical military re-supplies for the Kurdish forces."
