The US military has confirmed that the Takfiri ISIS terrorist group launched a chemical offensive against advancing Iraqi forces in the flashpoint city of Mosul over the weekend.
Iraqi security sources reported last Saturday that ISIS terrorists had fired missiles loaded with chlorine at the then-freshly-liberated neighborhood of al-Abar in west Mosul, causing respiratory problems for at least seven troops.
According to Iraq’s Federal Police, ISIS also hit two other districts of western Mosul, namely Urouba and Bab al-Jadid, with chemical attacks on Saturday.
The foreign-backed terrorist group, which seized Mosul in June 2014, has so far carried out numerous chemical attacks against both Iraqi forces and civilians.
