Wars & Rumors of War

WHO says chemical weapons being used on Mosul civilians -
UPI reports: "The World Health Organization said there is evidence of chemical weapons being used against civilians outside Mosul, with a dozen people injured, four severely, in the several days. [...] Since Wednesday, the WHO said 12 people, including women and children, have sought medical treatment for symptoms consistent with chemical weapons that caused burning and blisters. The victims lived in the Mosul suburb of Erbil, the WHO said."

Comment:  This is a good reminder that international prohibitions are only as strong as the will to enforce them.
