Syrian rebels fire ‘shells with poison gas’ in Aleppo
Poison gas was fired at a government-held area of Aleppo on Sunday, causing at least 15 people to choke, Syrian state media said.
State news agency SANA reported that “shells containing poison gases” had been fired at the residential district of al-Hamdaniya.
SANA did not report any deaths, but pan-Arab Al-Mayadeen channel stated that at least one person died, while 15 others are believed to have breathing difficulties after inhaling the gas. They are now being treated at the local hospital.
