The US and its allies have carried out 22 air strikes on Islamic State in Iraq and Syria in the past 24 hours, it has emerged.
There were three strikes near Hasaka in northeast Syria hitting a tactical unit and destroying Isis fighting positions, bunkers and excavators, according to a Coalition Joint Task Force spokesman.
Another strike near Aleppo hit an Isis tactical unit.
Kobani, near the Turkish border, also took a hit destroying three fighting positions and a tactical unit.
And in a co-ordinated attack with the Iraqi Government, there were fifteen strikes in Iraq targeting Islamic State buildings and equipment near Baiji, Fallujah, Mosul and Sinjar.
This latest round of air strikes come as political turmoil continues within Iraq.
An Iraqi parliamentary panel called on Suneqy for the former Prime Minister Nuri-al-Maliki and dozens of top officials to stand trial over the fall of the city of Mosul to Isis last year.
The panel's findings allege Maliki had an inaccurate picture of the threat to Mosul because he chose commanders who were corrupt and failed to hold them to account.
While Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi ordered military commanders accused of abandoning their posts in Ramadi, capital of the Anbar province which was overrun by Islamic State in May, to face court martial.
This comes a week after Abadi began sweeping reforms to the government to try and provide accountability for the loss of almost a third of the country’s territory to the radical jihadists.
Abadi slashed 11 ministerial posts, including cutting the three deputy prime minister posts and combining four ministries with similar ones.
