Massive US Airstrike Hits Suspected ISIS Chemical Weapons Factory | Military.com

Twelve U.S. warplanes, including a B-52 Stratofortress bomber and A-10 Thunderbolts, carried out a massive airstrike Monday on a suspected chemical weapons production complex in the ISIS-held stronghold of Mosul, Iraq, the commander of U.S. Central Command air forces said Tuesday.

The sprawling complex in the Mosul area had been a pharmaceutical factory and was suspected of having been taken over by ISIS to produce “chlorine or mustard gas — we don’t know for sure at this point,” said Air Force Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Harrigian, the commander of U.S. Air Forces for U.S. Central Command in southwest Asia.
