According to the Wall Street Journal, an Iraqi military official has confirmed that ISIS has been making use of a chemistry lab in Iraq’s University of Mosul to test and build deadlier bombs. The Islamic State has controlled the lab for two years.
The concern is ISIS soon could get its hands on the materials necessary to build and deploy a radioactive dirty bomb.
“The University of Mosul is the best Daesh research center in the world,” Gen. Hatem Magsosi, Iraq’s top explosives officer, told the Wall Street Journal. The terrorists used the lab to produce chemical weapons, peroxide-based bombs and suicide vests similar to the the ones used by the attackers in Belgium and Paris, military officials said.
