Kuwait Airways suspended flights to Iraq on Saturday, one day after a rocket attack targeted Baghdad International Airport.

The Gulf state’s flag carrier cited “the current situation in Iraq” for its decision to suspend flights to its neighbor.

On Friday, six Katyusha rockets landed in the Baghdad International Airport compound, causing damage to two civilian aircraft.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi described the airport attack as an “attempt to defame the country,” vowing a “decisive” response against the “dangerous” attack.

The airport compound is adjacent to a US air base, known as Camp Victory. The base came under several rocket attacks in recent months, which Washington blames on Iran-backed militias.
