Out of curiosity I wonder if those are destined for Iraqi Airways. The article said that the Iraqi Government ordered them, is Iraqi Airways a government owned airline? Also, what kind of routes would those run? I dont know of any civilian airfields in Iraq other than Baghdad International. I would assume Mosul and Kirkuk have civilian fields but Im not certain.

I heard rumors of european carriers (BA, AF, LH) starting service to Basra a few years ago because Baghdad wasn't yet stable (and arguably still isn't); that may be another part of the domestic service as from what I understand it is a decently-sized port city. I am sure some are going to be utilized to Amman as well if there isn't extensive service there already.
