Allegations of chemical weapon use by state and non-state actors in the Middle East and surrounding regions increased substantially in 2015. International efforts to clarify the nature of the allegations and to mitigate the consequences of the attacks continued. The main areas affected by the suspected chemical weapon attacks were in Iraq and Syria. The Syrian Government was accused of carrying out further attacks, while the Islamic State (IS) was alleged to have used chemical weapons in both countries.
