You probably could *IF* you run Linux or one of the *BSDs.
If you don't want to erase Windows and run Linux or one of the *BSDs instead, you might be able to use VirtualBox:
or Parallels Desktop for Windows:
or VMware Workstation:
to run Linux or one of the *BSDs in a virtual machine, if the virtual machine software will let you attach USB devices to the virtual machine (I have a Mac, and VMware Fusion lets me attach a USB 802.11 device to virtual machines, which is how I tested changes to libpcap to support monitor mode on Linux and *BSD).

VirtualBox, and many Linux distributions and *BSDs, are available for a free download; you should be able to download them from Iraq.
Parallels Desktop is $79.99 US, which, according to a currency-conversion site I found, is 93500 dinars.
VMware Workstation is $189.00 US, which is 221000 dinars. They offer student discounts from the VMware Academic store:
I don't see anything that says that only US academic institutions qualify.
The least-expensive AirPcap adapter costs $198 US, which is 231500 dinars.
