ISIS militants may use munitions filled with mustard gas in their attacks against Syrian troops, reports TASS with the reference to a source in the Russian General Staff.

"After attacks performed by our aircraft we investigated militants' negotiations on the urgent transfer of special ammunition to the front line with the Syrian troops. Also they talked about some sort of "surprises", apparently improvised explosive devices filled with chemical components," said the unknown person from the General Staff. According to him, "these special ammunition and "surprises" should be delivered as speedily as possible; particularly, to the areas where the government troops are the most active in order to stop the offensive and create an impenetrable barrier of chemical contamination, not only for people but for equipment as well".

"This is a grave data; a month ago some channels reported that the militants have some stocks of sulphur mustards," stated the source.

Mustard gas can burn skin and cause severe respiratory problems, mustard-contaminated areas may appear completely normal, and victims can unknowingly receive high dosages. It is banned under international law.
