ISIL militants have used chemical weapons in Kobani, Kurdish fighters who are defending the Syrian city against the Takfiri terrorists say.
Kurdish officials and doctors said on Wednesday that the terrorists released a sort of toxic gas in the eastern side of the Kurdish city late on Tuesday.
Aysa Abdullah, a senior Kurdish official based in Kobani, said the victims had symptoms that included dizziness and watery eyes and that there was no equipment to precisely determine what kinds of chemicals had been used.
Other reports said the victims were transferred to a hospital in neighboring Turkey.
Many have joined the ISIL from Iraq’s former Baathist regime, highly skilled at using chemical weapons.
The Baathists are led by Izzat Ibrahim, the henchman of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
The ISIL terrorists have been committing heinous crimes in the captured areas, including mass executions and beheading of people.
