Iraqi unit with US, Australian advisers hit with gas by ISIS
An Iraqi unit with US and Australian advisers was hit by an ISIS mustard agent, CBS reported, adding that 25 Iraqis required treatment but none of the advisers were injured Sunday.
Brigadier General Yahya Rasool told the Associated Press that six soldiers suffered breathing problems from Sunday’s attack and were treated in a field clinic.
The attack marked the second chemical attack of its kind in several days. It occurred one day after an Iraqi military officer said ISIS militants launched a gas attack in the al-Abar neighborhood in western Mosul.
An officer with the antiterrorism forces said ISIS fired a rocket loaded with chlorine.
