ISIS, over the last two years, seem to be developing a chemical weapons capability.

 An expert warned that ISIS had an 'almost limitless' supply of chemical weapons such as mustard and chlorine gas.

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, who has recently returned from training Kurdish fighters how to use gas masks, said he had witnessed the effects of chlorine attacks first hand.

'In the last few months, the Peshmerga say they have been attacked over 20 times by terrorists using mustard agent, which they appear to be making themselves, and chlorine, from probably the largest chlorine factory in the Middle East in Mosul.

'So they have almost limitless amounts of this stuff and they appear to be very keen to use it.

'Chemical weapons are the ultimate terror weapon even though bullets and bombs cause more damage.' 

ISIS is believed to have set up a special unit for chemical weapons research made up of Iraqi scientists who worked on weapons programmes under Saddam Hussein, as well as foreign experts.

Leaked ISIS files showed a number of senior foreign fighters with chemical engineering degrees and lengthy experience in the field back home, Daily Mail reported.
