This study used the analysis of Panel data using the fixed and random effects models and the general least squares method (GLS) to test the study hypotheses. The results showed that the capital structure is measured by the ratio of indebtedness and profit before interest and taxes to total assets. It has a negative and significant moral impact on the performance of Iraqi banks as measured by the return on assets and the study recommended to the banks' administrations to use all means that will enhance the deposits and all its forms as the main source in Yale activities
