Islamic State Creates ‘Chemical Weapons Cell’ In Syria Made Up Of Its Top Specialists Across The Caliphate
Gareth Davies writes in the May 18, 2017 edition of the DailyMailOnline that “the Islamic State has created a chemical weapons cell in Syria, made up of its top specialists from across its new, self-titled caliphate,” according to U.S. officials. After having to flee Mosul and Raqqa, Mr. Davies writes that what’s left of its members in the area are flocking to ‘an area it controls [in Syria] within the Euphrates River valley. It is here,” he adds, “between Mayadin and the town of al Qaim, across the border in Iraq, where the cell [terrorist group] is working on its chemical arsenal.”
According to a U.S. Defense Department source, “thousands of ISIS terrorists have converged on the area, in what is now the de facto capital for the group; and, where the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is reportedly hiding,” probably in an underground tunnel, that would be my guess. If he moves about at all, he is most certainly disguised, maybe as a woman.
The chemical weapons group, “is made up of chemistry experts from across Iraq, and Syria, who have been brought together for the first time,” according to an official who spoke to CNN.
This sounds like a great target to concentrate on. Hopefully, these thugs will continue to gather and concentrate in this area, so we can eliminate as many of them as possible. V/R, RCP
