In what should be 'dubbed' as a heinous act, reports have emerged that the ISIS militants allegedly used chemical weapons against Kurdish fighters in Kobane.
The Islamic State militants, who have captured almost two-third of Kobane, reportedly used mustard gas (blister agent) against the Kurdish fighters.
The Middle-East Review of International Affairs (MERIA Journal) released a whole set of pictures to prove the use of chemical weapons against the Kurds.
The MERIA Journal report noted that the type of chemical agent used on the Kurdish fighters in Kobane has been verified by its Israeli experts, who after analysing the blisters formed on the bodies on several Kurdish soldiers found that it was caused by mustard gas.
The bodies of three Kurdish fighters showed no signs of damage from bullets. Rather "...burns and white spots on the bodies of the dead indicated the use of chemicals, which led to death without any visible wounds or external bleeding," said Kurdish health minister Nisan Ahmed.
For long there has been a fear that the Islamic State would be able to get hold of chemical weapons from the factories run by the Syrian government. Syrian government reportedly has 16 factories for making deadly chemical weapons.
Besides Syria, the most likely place from where ISIS may have gotten hold of chemical weapons is from the former chemical weapons facility built by Saddam Hussein in Muthanna, Iraq.
Earlier in June, the ISIS captured the Muthanna facility from Iraqi soldiers and along with it, a huge cache of chemical weapons, including 2,500 degraded chemical rockets filled with deadly nerve agent sarin and mustard gas.
The use of a chemical weapon against the Kurdish fighter once again proves that the ISIS will not stop massacring the Kurds once it has taken control of the town. For the Sunni militant group -- ISIS, the communism-believing Kurds are infidels and are seen as a sign of pure evil, which must be killed at all cost.
Kobane is currently under siege and in danger of falling under Islamic State control any moment.
The report, besides calling in for more expert studies, warned that if ISIS has used the chemical weapons once, then it surely means that it has a stockpile of weapons, which poses a grave threat to everyone.
