According to the source, two middle-aged people suffered from the poisonous gas. One of them, a man named Mirvan, was taken to a hospital in the city of Erbil in Kurdistan.
This is the eighth attack in which the terrorists have used chemical weapons. It was launched at a time when Iraqi government forces entered the district to rescue civilians.
Daesh previously launched a chemical attack in the al Saura district on April 22. The attack killed six people and injured 12, a source in the internal security forces told Sputnik Arabic.
Back in April it was reported that over 80 residents of Mosul, predominantly women and children, had died as a result of inhaling toxic poisonous gas.
