On February 17th, a terrorist attack occurred in the ruins of Mosul. The attack was accompanied by the release of a toxic gas that killed more than 1000 people. The sole survivor appears to have suffered severe mental trauma from an unknown neurotoxin.

Al Araf, an insurgent group, claimed responsibility and has called for a meeting with government and international officials. They threaten that, unless their conditions are met, more deadly attacks will follow.
