Iraq’s military says six rockets struck Baghdad’s international airport facility on Friday, damaging two commercial planes but causing no casualties.
The rockets struck in the early morning hours and fell on the planes parked in a waiting area of Iraqi Airways, the country’s main carrier.
The airline said in a statement that the attack damaged one of its out of service planes parked near the airport but that operations were running normally and no delays were expected.
The airport contains an Iraqi military base that hosts U.S. and other coalition advisors.
