Cairo – 28 January 2022: The Foreign Ministry deeply condemned Friday's missile shelling of Baghdad International Airport, which resulted in material damage.

In a statement, the ministry said such attacks constitute a direct threat to Iraq's stability and undermine the freedom of air navigation.

It also asserted Egypt's full solidarity with Iraq in all measures taken by the country to preserve its security and stability, the statement added.

At least six rockets landed in the Baghdad International Airport compound and near an adjacent US air base, damaging one disused civilian airplane, Iraqi police sources said on Friday.

The police sources did not report any other damage or any injuries, Al Arabiya reported.

The damaged aircraft was an out of use Iraqi Airways plane, they said.

Iraq’s state news agency reported, citing the country’s aviation authority, that there was no disruption to travel.
