The Iraqi Civil Aviation Authority has suspended flights from Baghdad to Sulaymaniyah and Erbil in the Kurdish region of Iraq (KRI) for two days, effective from today.
The move follows concern that Russian jets and cruise missiles pass though that airspace from the Caspian Sea region, to targets in Syria.
It is unclear why the suspension was for two days only, but Iraq coordinates with Russian intelligence in Baghdad, so this may be a reason.
