NYT: ISIS Used Chemical Arms at Least 52 Times in Syria and Iraq, Report Says

They’re not likely to refer to it to today, but in Nov 2016 the NYT reported this:

More than one-third of those chemical attacks have come in and around Mosul, the Islamic State stronghold in northern Iraq, according to the assessment by the IHS Conflict Monitor, a London-based intelligence collection and analysis service.
