CNN)The U.S. military has led airstrikes against targets it accepts are critical to ISIS' compound weapons program taking into account data gave by a senior ISIS agent included in concoction weapons, a few U.S. authorities told CNN.

The U.S. caught the agent in Iraq three weeks prior, the first since a group of Special Operations constrains as of late started working in northern Iraq. Authorities told CNN that his name is Sleiman Daoud Al-Bakkar. One authority called him "the key pioneer," however others couldn't say on the off chance that he runs the whole synthetic weapons program for ISIS.

The data he gave to cross examiners has given the U.S. enough data to start striking ISIS territories in Iraq connected with the gathering's compound weapons program. One U.S. official said the objective is to find, target and do strikes that will bring about the devastation of ISIS's whole concoction weapons endeavor - predominantly mustard operators ISIS produces itself.

It was not quickly clear if the U.S. could strike the greater part of the important targets. Insight and observation of the objectives had demonstrated in some Iraqi areas that regular people were available at forthcoming destinations, authorities told CNN.

While the objective is to end ISIS' capacity to make and utilize mustard operators, the genuine targets being struck incorporate individuals, offices and vehicles.

The project is one the U.S. military has been following, with Defense Secretary Ash Carter saying a month ago the Pentagon was readied to strike against it.

"It's something we observe nearly and it's something we make a move against," Carter said in a meeting that disclosed on PBS.

Since the weekend, the U.S. has struck what it is calling "ad libbed weapons offices" and different focuses close Mosul, Iraq, however authorities would not say if these were synthetic weapons destinations.

At the solicitation of the Pentagon, CNN at first withheld distributed the prisoner's association with ISIS' substance weapons program since barrier authorities said unveiling that would chance cautioning ISIS to potential airstrike targets. With the substance weapons program undisturbed, it would permit ISIS to utilize the weapons to strike regular folks, troops the U.S. bolsters, and potentially even U.S. troops.

Authorities would not clarify why they trusted the detainment itself hadn't imperiled the airstrikes, or why the U.S. military trusts ISIS had not saw the caught agent had disappeared from its positions. In any case, the agent is said to have frequently moved around in Iraq, and authorities said despite everything they trust his catch was obscure to ISIS.

U.S. Extraordinary Operations powers caught the agent over three weeks prior. He has been held and examined in Irbil, Iraq, for any data he has about the compound weapons program and the area of other key ISIS work force or weapons stocks. While there are different ISIS agents included in the system, the U.S. accepts as of right now that the caught man is urgent to understanding this risky wing of the association.

The agent was caught in one of the principal missions of the supposed Expeditionary Targeting Forces. It is a gathering of somewhere in the range of 200 Special Operations troops collected in northern Iraq to accumulate knowledge and seek after ISIS agents on the ground by either catching or murdering them in Iraq, and in the long run in Syria. Carter as of late recognized the ETF is "having an impact and working.

"It's a device that we presented as a feature of our - the quickened operations to direct strikes of different sorts, seizing places and individuals, liberating prisoners and detainees of ISIL, and making it such that ISIL needs to trepidation that anyplace, at whatever time, it might be struck," he said in late February, utilizing an alternate name for ISIS.

The U.S. pursued this specific individual because of worries about the "abilities and plan" he has, one of the authorities said. The mission to catch him was particularly custom-made to the area where he was, and was intended to permit troops to have the capacity to seize him. U.S. Uncommon Operations strengths were sure he was at the area in Iraq after secretly looking over it for a few days.

The U.S. knowledge group has been following various affirmed compound assaults by ISIS where powdered mustard operators was utilized as a part of ordnance shells, the authority said. The latest assault was a month prior.

The U.S. knowledge group has affirmed 12 instances of the utilization of mustard specialists. Three different cases are suspected. They incorporate areas in both Syria and Iraq. Most of the cases have been in Syria, some as far west as the Maraa line where battling has seethed. Different assaults have happened crosswise over Iraq, including Sinjar Mountain and the territory around Mosul, and in addition areas assist south towards Baghdad.

Be that as it may, U.S. authorities are fairly making light of the assaults, saying they trust any passings were a consequence of being hit by mounted guns, not the operators itself. Since cross examinations of the prisoner started, U.S. Exceptional Operations strengths have been utilizing the data he has given to start to find targets.

Under the principles of engagement, U.S. Exceptional Operations powers must have nonstop observation of an objective for a timeframe to guarantee they know who arrives and the areas of any potential adjacent regular citizens before they strike.

The U.S. has said every single Special Operation missions are composed with the Iraqi government.

VP Joe Biden has identified with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi twice in the most recent week, however White House readouts of the call did not specify the prisoner. It couldn't promptly be learned if there were Iraqi strengths joined in the attack to catch the man, or whether Iraqis were included in the airstrikes.

Executive of National Intelligence James Clapper as of late alluded to the affirmation of compound assaults by ISIS in congressional confirmation. "Synthetic weapons keep on representing a risk in Syria and Iraq," Clapper told the House insight board of trustees. "ISIL has additionally utilized harmful chemicals as a part of Iraq and Syria, including the rankle operators Sulfur Mustard. (It's) the first run through a fanatic gathering has delivered and utilized a compound fighting specialists as a part of an assault since Aum Shinrikyo utilized sarin as a part of Japan in 1995."

Barrier authorities said this was the main open affirmation by the U.S. administration of mustard specialists assaults. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons likewise keeps on following reports of the utilization of mustard specialists and is chatting with the U.S. about other conceivable assaults, U.S. authorities said.

Specialists will likewise need to know whether ISIS has any arrangements to utilize synthetic operators in assaults against the West. It's indistinct whether the caught agent has that learning.
