Islamic State Used Chemical Agent Against Kurdish Fighters

ISIS has become the talk of the day. Whether watching the news on TV or online, you will definitely come across news on the terror group. According to live news is that the group just like many other militants use all manner of crude weapons and kill their ‘enemies’ in terrible manners. Earlier in the week, Kurdish fighters interacted with the group in northern Iraq. The Kurdish fighters are currently being trained by groups such as German military in order to fight ISIS.

In the latest attack, the Islamic State is said to have used a certain chemical agent against their opponents. The exact name of the blistering chemical was not released and it is said that over 60 fighters were affected which is just a fraction of the number of fighters in the region. The group could have used mustard gas to cause the skin reactions but since there are several chemical agents that cause similar blistering, experts are yet to determine the specific agent.

The Kurdish fighters are being trained with assistance from the German military. Most of those that were affected by the blistering chemical had breathing difficulties as per the German Defense Ministry. According to the news on http://www.showscorners.com is that the Islamic State has used chlorine in their weapons during attacks. Many questions remain unanswered including how the group obtained the unidentified chemical. It could be Mustard gas which is one of the blistering agents, but that is yet to be determined.

In another shocking news In the Chinese Port city of Tianjin, explosions have left more than 100 people dead including firefighters and 700 others injured with 71 of them being in critical conditions as per the reports. It is not yet clear what caused the explosion that started at the Tianjin Dongjiang Port Rui Hai International Logistics Company warehouse but unfortunately days later, the number of the dead has increased. Shipping containers were mangled, buildings miles away were shaken and scores of people went missing.

Many of the 700 people that were injured were taken to hospitals for treatment as some suffered from burns while others suffered from cuts. Over 1,000 firefighters were deployed to contain the remaining fires.

The explosion has raised many questions than answers as many are questioning how the dangerous chemicals are stored in the port city.
