After the start of the Anglo-Iraqi war that lasted from April 18th to May 30th 1941, the Italians and Germans gave their military support to the Iraqis. The Luftwaffe opposed the RAF with the unit named "Sonderkommando (Special Force) Junck" aircraft were Messerschmitt Bf 110 fighters, Heinkel He 111 bombers and Junkers Ju 52 transports.

The British drove out both the Italians and German forces supporting the Iraqi uprising the Germans left their damaged aircraft behind and the surviving personnel escaping to Syria. The British denied Nazi Germany a foothold in the Middle East, and hoped to convert the Arabs to the Axis side.

Photo of Bf 110 in flight date unknown:

Looks like a retouched photo no aircraft code
is visible on fuselage and the swastika is
placed on the rudder not on the stabilizer.

Anyway that's my guess, and I'm sticking to
it, but then I've been wrong before.
