Iraqi unit with US advisers hit by ISIS mustard agent | Daily Mail Online

An Iraqi unit with U.S. and Australian advisers has been hit by mustard gas by ISIS forces.

Six soldiers suffered breathing problems and another 19 were forced to seek treatment after ISIS militants launched the gas attack against the US-backed unit in the city of Mosul, northern Iraq.

It is the second chemical attack against the Iraqi troop in two days, after an officer with the anti-terrorism unit said ISIS fired a rocket loaded with chlorine at the al-Abar neighborhood in western Mosul.
