Syrian rebels, govt. say poison gas used in village, blame each other

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Syrian government and rebel forces say poison gas has been used in a central village, injuring scores of people, while blaming each other for the attack, the Associated Press reports.

The main Western-backed opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, says dozens of people were hurt in a poison gas attack Friday, April 11, in the village of Kfar Zeita.

State-run Syrian television on Saturday blamed members of the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front for using chlorine gas at Kfar Zeita, killing two people and injuring more than 100.

In August, a chemical attack near the capital, Damascus, killed hundreds of people. The U.S. and its allies blamed the Syrian government for that attack, which nearly sparked Western airstrikes against President Bashar Assad's forces. Damascus denied the charges and accused rebels of staging the incident.
