Concerns have grown dramatically about the possibility of new lethal attacks by Islamic State against France. Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has warned that his country is currently facing the risk of chemical and bacterial attacks.

This kind of attack is “among the risks that we must consider,” he said on Sunday in an interview on Europe-1.

But “it is very complicated to use chemical weapons from one territory to another,” Jean-Yves Le Drian said. “Every precaution has been taken to prevent this kind of risk,” the minister added.

On Thursday, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls also highlighted the need for his country to be prepared for chemical and biological attacks, warning that the “macabre imagination” of Islamic State “is limitless.”

US and European officials have repeatedly claimed that Islamic State is incapable of producing chemical weapons due to a lack of resources and technology, insisting that it has only managed to produce mustard gas so far, of low quality and in small quantities.

“It’s not enough to have mustard gas … one has to be able to team that up with a system of dissemination and it is here that things and techniques start getting very complicated,” Olivier Lepick, an expert on chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, told AFP on Thursday.
