Aid Groups Claim ISIS Used Chemical Weapons

Revelation 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).

At least two aid groups working to help civilians trapped by the terrorist group ISIS say that many are showing wounds that correspond with a mustard gas attack.

Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said that it has treated potential chemical weapons victims in Marea although they did not officially confirm mustard gas.  The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) said their doctors were able to identify the agent as mustard gas.

“Personally, I’ve never encountered these symptoms before, and clinical features and the evolution in time were highly suggestive of intoxication by a chemical agent,” an MSF doctor, who requested anonymity, told the Guardian newspaper. “I think we are never prepared to face this kind of atrocities among civilian population and children. As medics, we are trained to react in difficult and stressful situations, but events like this are overwhelming.”

At least one former military official with expertise in the field says the attack used mustard gas.

“This is classic mustard agent symptoms, I have no doubt,” Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a former commanding officer of the UK Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear regiment and Nato’s Rapid Reaction CBRN battalion, told the Guardian.

U.S. Central Command had previously reported that ISIS is suspected to have used chemical weapons on Kurdish forces in northern Syria.  Also, they reported a sulphur mustard gas attack on Kurdish forces in Iraq by the terrorists.
