British Think Tank: Iraq's 'Russian' Jets May be from Iran

Three Sukhoi ground attack jets shown landing in Iraq in a video released by the Defense Ministry are likely from Iran, a think tank said Wednesday, according to a report by the AFP news agency.

Iraq has purchased more than a dozen Sukhoi jets from Russia to bolster its forces in their battle against a sweeping jihadist offensive that has overrun large areas of five provinces.
