Turkey to fill Kurdish oil shortage: minister

A view of an oil refinery in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk, on June 20, 2014Turkey said Saturday it will provide fuel to Iraq’s Kurdistan region to make up for a shortage caused by a militant offensive that has shut down the country’s biggest oil refinery. Militants led by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have seized a vast swathe of territory in northern Iraq since overrunning the city of Mosul on June 10. As a result of the fighting, the Baiji refinery in Salaheddin province has been shut down and the supply route to Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdish region cut off. The fuel shortage has caused long queues to form at gas stations in Kurdish cities.
