Several rockets landed in the Baghdad International Airport compound and near an adjacent US air base, damaging at least one disused civilian aeroplane, Iraqi police sources said.
The police sources did not report any other damage or any injuries. The damaged aircraft was an out of use Iraqi Airways plane, they said.
Iraq's state news agency reported, citing the country's aviation authority, that there was no disruption to travel.
The US air base, known as Camp Victory, is located around the perimeter of Baghdad's civilian airport.
