According to CNN, ISIS has brought together all of its experts on chemical weapons from Iraq and Syria into a new “chemical weapons cell”. It is known that the new cell was established in an ISIS-controlled area, between Mayadin and the town of al Qaim, near Deir-ez-Zor.
CNN also reported that terrorists were planning to conduct chemical attacks to defend the remaining positions, which are still under their control.
According to Pentagon, nowadays, this territory is one of the most important strategic positions for ISIS. According to our sources, significant forces of militants are moving there from Syria’s Raqqa.
