UNSC Report on ISIL and CBW

It’s been a while, but here’s a November report from the UN Investigative Team to Promote Accountability for Crimes Committed by Da’esh/Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. It contains new information about ISIL’s “development and use of chemical and biological weapons.”
