Syria’s Foreign Ministry denied claims about military gas attack in northern Aleppo province, according to state news agency SANA.
The ministry denied any gas attack by the Syrian army on the rebel-held neighborhood of Sukkary, which allegedly took place on Wednesday.
The ministry accused the rebels and their regional and international backers of carrying out gas attacks against the Syrian civilians.
It further expressed readiness to cooperate with the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to investigate such crimes.
A day earlier, activists accused the Syrian army of using chlorine gas against the Sukkary neighborhood in Aleppo, adding that civilians suffered from suffocations and breathing difficulties.
