ISIS launches chemical weapons attack against US and Iraqi troops
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.
Australian medics at a secure base outside Mosul provided first aid to the Iraqi soldiers affected by the gas attack, a spokesman for Australian Defense Minister Marise Payne told The Sydney Morning Herald.
The failed gas attack highlights Daeshs desperation as Iraqi ground forces continue operations to liberate Mosul, the spokesman added.
