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.

Originally posted on Friends of Syria:

Germany’s Interior Minister Thomas Maiziere stated that all forms of support for ISIS will be treated as a criminal act. Specifically he mentioned any fundraising, campaigning, online support, or public display of ISIS symbols.

Germany already has section 86a in it’s criminal code to deal with these types of groups, which is most popularly used to restrict the display of Nazi Symbolism and support.

Germany is not standing alone in it’s decision to ban all ISIS support as The Netherlands made a similar decision last month.
