Trump defended his decision to withdraw US troops from Syria and enable a Turkish offensive against US-backed Kurdish fighters in the region by noting that the Kurds “didn’t help us in the second world war, they didn’t help us with Normandy as an example –
Not in Normandy, no, but they did form part of the allied OOB in the middle east, as "The Iraq Levies":
By 1942, the Iraq Levies consisted of a Headquarters, a Depot, Specialist Assyrian companies, 40 service companies and the 1st Parachute Company, which consisted of 75% Assyrian and 25% Kurd.
By 1943 the Iraq Levies' strength stood at 166 British officers controlling 44 companies: 22 Assyrian; five mixed Assyrian/Yazidi; 10 Kurdish; 4 Marsh Arabs and 3 Baluchi. Eleven Assyrian companies served in Palestine and another 4 served in Cyprus. The Parachute Company was attached to the Royal Marines Commando.
But they weren't on Omaha Beach, so I guess it doesn't count!
