Three hundred Iraqi soldiers died in a chlorine gas attack carried out by the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in the Iraqi city of Fallujah, said Ali al-Budairi, an Iraqi MP from the Shia-dominated National Iraqi alliance in the Iraqi Parliament on Monday.
It is unclear when the attacks took place. ISIS's use of chlorine gas in attacks isn't new. There are reports that the ISIS militants used chlorine-war gas before.
Speaking at a press conference in the Iraqi Parliament on Monday, Ali al-Budairi said: "ISIS killed 300 out of 400 soldiers they besieged in Saqlawiya district of northern Fallujah, using chlorine gas."
Al-Budairi held Anbar's operations chief Rashid Falih and new Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi responsible for failing to immediately send army backup to the district.
ISIS, which already controls parts of Syria, has extended its reach into Iraq since June 10.
Violence conducted by the ISIS militants has claimed more than 1,400 lives in Iraq, and caused 1.2 million Iraqis, including Turkmens, Arabs, Christians and Ezidis, to flee their homes.
I didn’t know Assad was fighting in Iraq...
Wherever could they have come from? Such a mystery!
WOW! Thanks for posting.
Isn’t this a violation of the Geneva accords? /s
Why You Shouldn’t Mix Bleach and Ammonia
Well, chlorine is fairly simple to produce.
Good thing it wasn’t ISIL!
What a horrible way to die....
I accidentally took a big snort of chorine fumes opening up my chorine tablet bucket to fill my pool chlorinator ....
I coughed for an hour and took a few days to finally be able to breath deeply without pain...
I can only imagine what a higher concentration in a gas form would do to you....
Can’t be true, there are NO WMD’S..the media and left said so/sarc
I didnt know Assad was fighting in Iraq...
Those were my exact thoughts when I read the headline. Obama and his muslim brotherhood wanted to use the deadly gas attacks as an excuse to invade Syria. I have always thought in was the terrorists (Obama calls them rebels) that used the deadly gases.
It was just Kerry shocking the Embassy pool.
I had an uncle who was gassed during WWI. Though he lived up through the 70s, he was never the same after that (or so I'm told).
Let’s look at Obola’s lunatic foreign policy.
If Assad, a kleptocrat ophthalmologist, uses chlorine gas... that will be a red line and we will use our military to remove him...
If Baghdadi, a maniacal Islamic extremist who has beheaded two American citizens and declared war on us, uses chlorine gas... who cares?!
Actions aside, even on the rhetoric Obola looks like a CLOWN!!!!
An evil clown.
This was part of the WMD that these liberals, socialists and communists swore that Sadaam Hussein didn’t have, or didn’t you know that? But once found, these same people said that it was all “DEGRADED” WMDs. Well now, what do you think their excuses are going to be? Understand this, these people, now calling themselves ISIS or ISIL, or whatever they decide to cal themselves tomorrow, when and if they have been defeated. Once we all realize the type of enemy we are fighting, we will begin to understand that the only way to defeat these people, is to kill them out right. NO PRISONERS. They are all combatants, and the only way we’ll win this war is to thoroughly destroy them.
Everyday I drive past a wealthy town’s chlorination plant over a dam and on some days I get choked in my truck with the windows closed.
