I don't know if the burnt out wreck is a Bell 47 There is not enough to see...and in one shot it looks like it has a multiple blade rotor head rather than the two blade Bell unit. Besides, I don't know what one would be doing there with Iraq's long history of UK and later Russian/Soviet Block equipment.
Could it be a Skeeter or Sycamore?
Also, that looks like a wingless Cessna Bird Dog...I don't know what one of those would be doing there either (unless a gift from someone...but they were rather rare in the mid-east).

There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.
