According to the statement, those missiles “landed on the waiting area for Iraqi Airways planes, which led to damage to two planes that were perched on the runway.”

The statement also pointed out that “this terrorist act seeks to undermine the government’s effort to restore Iraq’s regional role, impede the efforts of Iraqi Airways to be at the forefront of countries in the field of transport and air navigation, and raise the challenges of its work.”

The General Company for Iraqi Airways had reported earlier today that an out-of-service plane was damaged by missile strikes that targeted Baghdad International Airport.
