Iraqi Airways on Monday announced that it would resume flights between Iraq and Iran after Tehran launched a barrage of missiles and drones in a direct attack on Israel over the weekend.

The decision, announced in a brief statement by the national carrier cited by Iraqi official news agency INA, will come into effect as of Tuesday.

Iraq was among several Middle East countries to temporarily halt flights with Iran following Tehran's retaliatory attack against Israel.

Iran launched a barrage of drones and missiles at Israel on Saturday in response to an April 1 attack on the Iranian Consulate in Damascus, Syria, in which at least 13 people were killed, including seven military advisers.
