The Turkish Embassy in Iraq on Friday condemned a rocket attack that hit the Baghdad International Airport.

"Terrorist attacks targeting the stability of Iraq and the security of civilians must end," the embassy said in a statement.

Earlier on Friday, a police officer told Anadolu Agency that six Katuysha rockets hit the airport.

The attack caused significant damage to a civilian aircraft, the official said, adding no casualties were reported.

Flights continue to operate at the airport, flag carrier Iraqi Airways said, adding that the plane that was hit was "out of service."

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
