ISIS used mustard gas to attack Kurdish forces in Iraq last year

A source at the global chemical arms watchdog has confirmed that the Islamic State used mustard gas to attack Kurdish forces in Iraq, in the first known use of chemical weapons in the country since the removal of Saddam Hussein.

Lab tests had come back positive for the sulphur mustard after around 35 Kurdish troops were poisoned on the battlefield southwest of Erbil last August, a source at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said.

The results allegedly confirmed that mustard gas was used by ISIS fighters against the Kurds.
