Washington (CNN) - Fragments from an ISIS mortar fired on Kurdish forces near Makhmour, Iraq, earlier this month tested positive for sulfur mustard agent during a field test conducted by the U.S. military, a U.S. general told reporters at the Pentagon Friday. "That is a presumptive field test and it is not conclusive, and what those results tell us is merely the presence of that chemical. It doesn't tell us anything more than that," he said, adding that it would take a couple of week to complete a full test on the fragments to determine what was contained in the mortar rounds and, potentially, its quantity and origin.
