Chemical - militantsArmed opposition groups in Syria fired on Tuesday a chemical rocket at Khan Al-Assal town, North of Syria, killing 25 civilians and wounding 86 others, most are in a critical condition.

Syrian Information Minister Omran Al-Zoabi held the opposition forces the accountability of the crime, dubbing the attack a “serious escalation”.

For its part, the London-based “Syrian Observatory” reported that 26 people were killed in the attack including 16 soldiers.

However, the so-called “Free Syrian Army” denied responsibility, claiming that the Syrian army was behind the chemical attack.
