ISIS and al-Nusra use pure chemical warfare agents in Iraq and Syria – Syrian Arab News Agency
Moscow, SANA – Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova affirmed that the terrorists of Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS are using pure chemical warfare agents in Iraq and Syria such as mustard and sarin gases.
“We are seriously concerned about the recurring instances of chemical terrorism in the Middle East, particularly in Syria and Iraq,” Zakharova told Sputnik news agency.
“Especially worrying is the fact that ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra, and affiliated terrorist groups use not only industrial-grade toxic chemicals, such as chlorine, but also pure chemical warfare agents, including mustard gas and sarin,” Zakharova stressed.
