US says ISIL used sulfur-mustard agent in rocket attack in Iraq

The US military has confirmed that a chemical agent was used by ISIL in a rocket attack in Iraq on Tuesday near the Qayyara West base occupied by US troops. The initial test for the suspicious, tar-like black oily substance found was positive for a “mustard agent”, but the second test was negative. A third sample has been ordered for proper laboratory tests. Marine General Joseph Dunford told the US Senate armed services committee on Thursday that a sulfur-mustard blister agent had been identified.
