In 2016 there were continued instances (alleged and confirmed) of the use of chemical weapons in the armed conflicts in Iraq and Syria. Governments continued to target Islamic State (IS) including suspected chemical weapon-related infrastructure in connection with the 2016 Mosul offensive. The United Nations Security Council remained split over whether the Syrian Government has engaged in chemical warfare.
