Syrians aren’t the only ones who face possible attack from chemical weapons.

On Sunday, Americans actually came under attack from chemical weapons in Iraq.

From Daily Caller:

The Islamic State launched a chemical weapons attack against Iraqi, U.S. and Australian troops Sunday.

No U.S. or Australian troops suffered injuries from the mustard agent, but 25 Iraqis in the unit required treatment, CBS News reports.

This isn’t the first use of chemical weapons in the area.

To help defend against future attacks, two Army officers stated that gas masks have been passed around, as the attack Sunday marked the second chemical weapons attack in a matter of days. The last one occurred Saturday when ISIS launched an attack with a gas agent in western Mosul. ISIS apparently had fired a rocket full of chlorine.

ISIS is getting more desperate and more inclined to resort to chemical weapons.

The fighting is very dangerous now, going door-to-door.

Coalition spokesman Air Force Colonel John Dorrian told The BBC, “the fight’s been very, very slow and very, very hard… it’s gut-busting.”

The coalition forces have cleared ISIS out of most of Mosul, but ISIS is still holding a portion of the city in the northwest.

Hundreds of thousands of civilians remain trapped in Mosul, ISIS’ de facto capital in Iraq.

“Civilians in Mosul face incredible, terrifying risks,” U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Iraq Lise Grande said.

“They are being shot at, there are artillery barrages, families are running out of supplies, medicines are scarce and water is cut-off,” she added.

This is a period of great risk for the soldiers and civilians on the ground in Iraq as ISIS tries anything to hold their positions and tries to prevent being decimated.
