Reports of the first mass use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime began four years ago amid the country’s ongoing conflict.
In March 2013, both sides in the Syrian Civil War traded accusations over a gas attack that killed dozens of people, including government soldiers, in Khan al-Assal, a district of Aleppo city in northern Syria.An investigation by the United Nations later concluded that sarin nerve gas was used in the attack, but the international body did not identify a culprit.

So, Isis says they use chemical weapons, other people and groups say they use different types of chemical weapons but the US downplays Daesh's chemical weapons use and effectiveness.
This is my theory.
Since Donald Trump already attacked Syria as retaliation for Assad maybe using chemical weapons on babies, there is no way they can now turn around and admit that ISIL has chemical weapons capabilities and actually use them.
So even if Isis gasses and entire city it will have to be blamed on Assad or The Evil Russians. Just to save face.
Or is Isis just making things up?
Either way, it seems to me at least, that even if there was proof that Isis chemical weapons people it probably wouldn't make headlines at CNN.
As backwards as that sounds.
