A desperate ISIS is resorting to brutal tactics to try and maintain its positions in the western sections of the Iraqi city of Mosul.
After strong offensives from coalition forces, ISIS has turned to chemical weapons to try and thwart their enemies.
According to “The Washington Times,” ISIS unleashed chemical weapons on Wednesday in order to stop the coalition forces from advancing and liberating the city.
Several locals, including many innocent women and children and Iraqi soldiers were injured in the attack.
Gen. Joseph Martin later revealed that no U.S. personnel were injured in the attack.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The sadistic radicals have launched upwards of 52 chemical strikes of one form or another against coalition forces in both Iraq and Syria, with some 19 attacks being launched in Mosul alone.
The New York Times reported that tests were still being conducted to determine exactly what sort of chemical was used in the most recent attack, but it was suspected of being a sort of sulfur mustard gas, most likely delivered by “indirect fire” via a mortar round.
That attack came just one day after Islamic State group fighters launched a rocket filled with chlorine gas against Iraqi troops in another part of the city.
“We share the same risks as Iraqi forces. We are forward with the Iraqis,” Martin stated in the live stream from Baghdad.
“The longer this fight goes on in West Mosul, the civilians will suffer at the hands of a brutal enemy,” Martin added. “ISIS must be defeated quickly.”
ISIS is nothing but a group of barbarians pretending to be religious. They are the biggest sham in the history of the planet, giving Scientology a run for its money.
Hopefully President Donald Trump will continue to strong arm ISIS and annihilate them from the face of the planet. There is no place for their barbaric actions in our modern world and it is sickening how many innocent people they kill in the name of the Muslim faith.
