The militants have allegedly set up production of chlorine service projectiles and other chemical weapons in the laboratories of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, considered the extremists' primary stronghold in the country.

"We express grave concern over the findings of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) regarding the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Practical and political support for the OPCW and for the UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism is essential to identify and hold to account those involved in chemical weapons use in Syria," the declaration says.
