SULAIMANI, Iraq’s Kurdistan region,— Russian warplanes are violating the airspace of Iraq’s Kurdistan Region during their mission against the opponents of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria which may pose danger to the civil aviation in the region.
The Russian military aircrafts, taking off from the airport of Hamadan province in Iran, have been using the airspace of Sulaimani province in Iraqi Kurdistan for a week which have posed a threat to the civil aviation in the province and according to political commentators, the close connections of the officials of Sulaimani with Iran led to the violation of the air sovereignty.
Tahir Abdullah, director of the Sulaimani Airport told BasNews, ”the Iraqi Civil Aviation Authority (ICAA) has not informed us about the use of the airspace of the city by the Russian jets, therefore, we have no knowledge of the threat the jets can pose to the city’s civil aviation”.

Since the Kurdish airspace is still under the control of the ICAA, it should have informed the Sulaimani airport about such military mission, he said.
Sarsam Shwani, a Kurdish political commentator and university professor specialized in international law, said that according to the international law, all sorts of violations against the sovereignty of the countries are inhibited.
“If Kurdistan Region were an independent state, this violation would not happen,” he argued, and explained that Iraq has lost its sovereignty over its territories therefore the Iranian and Russian jets use its airspace without any prior legal permission.
Apart from the violations against the Iraqi sovereignty, the jets also endanger the civil aviation.

The US has also expressed its concern over the use of Hamdadn airport by the Russian aircrafts for their mission against the Syrian opposition forces.
In October 2015 Four Russian warships in the Caspian Sea launched 26 rockets at Islamic State in Syria. According to video captured by eye-witnesses on the ground it have passed over Iraqi Kurdistan.
Jabar Yawar, Secretary-General of Peshmerga in the Kurdistan Region, told NRT, “We do not have the radar capabilities to know who the missiles belong to and where they were headed.”
