Mustard Gas, Truck Bombs, A Million Civilians To Be Used As Human Shields; ISIS Plans Defence In Mosul

A huge battle looms as US-led coalition forces enclose on the ISIS stronghold of Mosul in Iraq where around 6,000 militants are believed to be ready to do anything to keep hold of the city. Mustard gas, car bombs and human shields are all thought to be tactics the terror group will use in their defence of Mosul, with US, British, Kurdish and Iraqi forces closing in alongside a Shia militia. The Iraqi army ground troops have been slowly re-taking towns and villages around the area ahead of the 'world's biggest battle against ISIS to date' which could be launched as early as Thursday.
