An Iraqi parliamentary panel has released a report on the fall of Mosul. In the analysis, former prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, and dozens of others were blamed for the conditions that allowed the Islamic State militants to seize large regions of Iraq in 2014. The report could mean trials for those deemed responsible for the disaster. Maliki is currently one of three vice presidents, but his post is scheduled to be eliminated in a new reform plan if the constitution allows it. Several posts have already been cut. The report will be read to the full parliament on Monday.
Three soldiers were killed and five security personnel were wounded during a mortar attack near Falluja.
A border patrol officer was shot dead in Muqdadiya.
Seventeen militants were killed in Albu Jwari.
In Baiji, 15 militants were killed.
Twelve militants died in Husayba.
Airstrikes on Hit left dozens of militants dead.
