Several alternate news sources have posted reports that there is evidence ISIL terrorists have recently used chemical weapons in eastern Kobani.
As usual, the mainstream media isn't reporting anything.
According to Press TV, Kurdish doctors have said that terrorists used some kind of toxic gas on Tuesday (Oct.21) evening. Victims were transported to hospitals across the border in Turkey with watery red eyes, dizziness, burns and wounds. Other sources reported that a peculiar odor that spread over the streets caused difficulty in breathing and respiratory conditions.
Al-Qaeda franchises have been in possession of chemical weapons since early 2013 which they used in at least two regions within Syria. Most likely the poison gas used by terrorists in Khan al-Assal (Aleppo province, Syria, which was attacked twice) in March 2013 and July 2013 was Sarin. It was again used (for the third time) in August 2013 at Ghouta in Damascus district .. only 20 minutes drive from the presidential residence. Yet President Bashar al-Assad was falsely accused of this crime to pave the way for direct US military intervention in Syria. Fortunately that didn't happen as Assad readily agreed to surrender Syria's cache of chemical weapons (a pittance compared to Israel's deadly accumulation).
The chemical agent used in Ghouta indicated to belong to the same stockpile as the one used in Khan al-Assal. There were reports that the terrorists themselves confirmed stealing stockpiles from government weaponry. Almost 400 Syrians were killed in the chemical attack in Ghouta. At least 150 Syrian soldiers and civilians were massacred in Khan al-Assal before the town fell into "rebel" hands in July 22, 2013. In March 2013, several farm animals were killed with poison gas in Khan al-Assal.
Like Israel, Al-Qaeda in Iraq (or AQI - former name for ISIL and al-Nusra) also has a secret history of using chemical weapons. They started it in Iraq after the preemptive invasion by imperialist forces causing immense destruction from 2005 to early 2007. AQI manufactured crude explosives with chlorine gas, which is a banned substance. They also detonated chlorine bombs loaded in cars. Deaths in such attacks were caused mostly by the force of the blast rather than inhaling chlorine. But in the aftermath, survivors felt awfully ill with identical symptoms of discomfort as in cases of inhaling poison gas.
