Local sources from the town of Marea in the countryside of Aleppo confirmed on Tuesday that ISIS again attacked the town with dozens of shells containing toxic materials.
Social media activists said that ISIS used toxic substances during its attacks on Marea on Tuesday, including mustard gas delivered by heavy artillery shells. The activists also said that these attacks caused dozens of asphyxiation cases among locals and that the town became filled with a strong, unpleasant odor.
ISIS attacked Marea using chemical artillery shells on August 22, causing several cases of asphyxiation. International investigators and technicians recently reported that ISIS had carried out two other chemical attacks on the Syrian towns of Tal Barrak and Hassakeh.
