Iraq has received another batch of six T-50IQ fighter trainer jets from South Korea, the Iraqi Air Force said in a statement.
This is the second batch of T-50IQ received by Iraq. So, now, the Iraqi Air Force has 12 T-50IQ fighter trainer jets.
The Iraqi Air Force is going to use the received warplanes in operations against the remaining ISIS cells across the country.
Last year, the Irqi military announced that it will receive 24 T-50IQ aircraft from South Korea in the framework of an agreement signed in 2013. The $1.1 billion agreement included delivery of the aircraft and training of Iraqi personnel.
