DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria’s state-run news agency says 25 people have been killed in an alleged rebel chemical attack in northern Syria.

Rebels in northern Syria deny the government claim and blamed regime forces for Tuesday’s missile attack on Khan al-Assad village in northern Aleppo province.

SANA says 86 people were wounded, some in critical condition. It published pictures showing casualties, including children, on stretchers in what appears to be a hospital ward.

They say victims were taken to a hospital in a government-controlled area in Aleppo.
