“The Government of the Syrian Arab Republic immediately contacted Health Directorate in Aleppo which confirmed that it didn’t receive any medical emergency case in the hospitals due to injuries caused by toxic, poisonous chemicals”, the Foreign Ministry said.

“Syria affirms its conviction that the use of chemical weapons by anyone at any place and under any circumstance is unacceptable”, the statement said.

It added that the Syrian Arab Republic, while condemning the use of the toxic gases against the Syrian people by the terrorist groups and their masters which claimed the lives of innocent civilians, it reiterates its readiness to cooperate with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and its delegation which is present now in Syria to investigate into these crimes and others.
