Foreign airlines cancel flights to Baghdad after FlyDubai jet was hit by suspected sniper fire during landing.

All foreign airlines flying to Baghdad have cancelled flights landing at the city's international airport after a FlyDubai passenger jet was shot at while approaching the Iraq capital.

An aviation official and a security official told Reuters news agency that two passengers were lightly injured when three or four bullets hit the body of the plane on Monday evening but they were unable to specify the source of the gunfire. Flydubai, Emirates, Sharjah's Air Arabia and Abu Dhabi's Etihad were the first to suspend flights following the incident, in line with a directive from the United Arab Emirates' civil aviation authority.

If that was truly sniper fire, then whoever was sitting in that seat may have been the intended target, even if it were a random passenger. All I'm saying is that it looks like it could've been aimed at that particular seat. Or, it could've been random chance and managed to hit right there. Who knows.

If it was aimed, that is crazy, because it means someone is laying there with a rifle watching the plane in their target, aiming for a particular passenger.
