ISIS Tested Chemical Weapons On Live Victims

From Daily-Mail:
Horrifying experiments are being carried out on ISIS prisoners as the terror group tries to develop chemical weapons, documents reveal.

Iraqi special forces have uncovered details of the use of human 'guinea pigs' - who died during testing - after Mosul University was recaptured from jihadists.

Papers seen by The Times show terrorists have been using easily-obtainable pesticides to develop chemical weapons in experiments likened to Nazi research.

comes after it emerged ISIS has recruited weapons experts from around the world and shifted its research operation to Syria.

British and US intelligence services, which have verified the documents, fear the weapons could be used on targets in the West.

Shocking details of the cruel experiments reveal that one man, who died after 10 days, was fed thallium sulphate, which caused severe swelling to his stomach and brain.

Thallium sulphate is a highly poisonous agent which has been used as rat poison.

In a second documented experiment, a nicotine agent was injected into a man held captive by ISIS, and he died within two hours, The Times reports.

Chemical weapons expert Hamish de Bretton-Gordon told the newspaper: 'This is a horrifying throwback to the Nazis who would test nerve gas agents on humans.'

The university was recaptured in January, having been used by jihadists for chemical weapons testing for three years.

Since the city was recaptured, ISIS has moved its research operation to Syria.

This week it emerged that a cell is working on its chemical arsenal within the Euphrates River Valley.

A source in the US defence department said thousands of ISIS terrorists have converged in the area, which is where the group's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is said to be hiding.

The production faction is made up of chemistry experts from across Iraq and Syria, who have been brought together for the first time, an official told CNN.

With so many of its strongholds under huge pressure from coalition forces, the move is said to be a tactical switch to boost its ability to defend those areas.

US authorities monitoring the area said they have observed a growing number of ISIS chiefs abandoning Raqqa for the stretch of land south of the Euphrates River.

'We know they have been moving a lot of their leadership out of Raqqa and we suspect much of their technical expertise and planning as well,' US Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway, a Pentagon spokesman, told CNN.

Colonel Ryan Dillon, a spokesman for the US-led military coalition, told the site that ISIS have used what he called low-grade chemical agents in the past.

'We know ISIS is willing to use chemical weapons. This is not something we want to see them get good at,' he said.

The officials' conclusions are backed by the fact there have been more than 15 chemical weapon attacks since April 14 in or around Mosul.
