SULAIMANI — Kuwait Airways has temporarily suspended all flights to Iraq due to "current conditions” in the country, the airline announced on Saturday (January 29).

The orders came from the General Administration of Kuwaiti Civil Aviation, the announcement noted.

Missiles were fired at Baghdad International Airport early on Friday morning and a civilian plane that was no longer in use was badly damaged in the attack.

Camp Victory military base located nearby also came under drone attack, which the missile defense system managed to intercept.

US forces struck down two armed drones targeting Camp Victory, a US airbase, on January 3. Missile attacks have regularly targeted the complex over the past few years.
