The terrorists organization ISIL could be responsible for an attack with chemical weapons on US and Iraqi soldiers at a military base "El Kayara" in Iraq, reported CNN citing the Pentagon (the US MIA -. Ed.).
The incident took place south of the Iraqi city of Mosul, where the US troops are operating. It is because of the military operations in the region that the suspicion fell on the IS terrorists, which thus tried to stop the planned offensive.
According to the preliminary data by chemists, the shell contained mustard gas of extremely poor quality. No facts of military being poisoned have been recorded.
Since summer 2014 the Iraqi city of Mosul has been one of the most powerful strongholds of the terrorist organization ISIL. In March this year, the Iraqi army in collaboration with the Air Force of the International Coalition against ISIL has launched a military operation to clean up the city.
