Armies have used modern chemical agents in battle since World War I and these weapons’ effects on the human body are so heinous – their use in conflict was banned internationally in 1925 by the Geneva Protocol. However, despite nearly 140 nations ratifying the Geneva Protocol, they are still sporadically used in some conflicts – notably by Saddam Hussein in Iraq in the early '90s and in the on-going conflict in Syria.
