The militants of the Islamic State terrorist organization used mustard gas (yperit) against the Syrian army during the attack on a military airport in the eastern province of Deir ez-Zor, which borders Iraq.
“The terrorists have used missiles with mustard gas,” Reuters reports with reference to Syrian state television.
There is no information about the number of the attack victims.
Deir ez-Zor is a strategic place. It is reported that ISIS launched a large-scale attack on the village of al-Jufrah located near the airport.
It was reported earlier by QHA that Bashar al-Assad’s forces ousted ISIS militants from the strategically important Syrian city of Palmyra, uniting the eastern part of the country with Damascus.
