(Yahoo News) – At West Emergency Hospital in Erbil, five small children lie in beds, along with their mother, all wrapped in bandages, with chemical burns from a mortar attack that hit their house. The family is from a neighborhood called Giraj al-Shimal, in eastern Mosul. They are among the 15 people who had been brought to Erbil hospitals in the past few days. On Friday, the International Committee of the Red Cross [ICRC] reported victims showing “clinical symptoms consistent with an exposure to a blistering chemical agent.” The symptoms included “blisters, redness in the eyes, irritation, vomiting and coughing.” Many victims are still being evaluated at field hospitals, and the ICRC couldn’t account for those who had not been able to reach a doctor.
