Syria denies its use of chemical weapons

Syria's government denied on Wednesday that its forces have used chemical weapons in the civil war, days after an international inquiry found the government forces responsible for a third toxic gas attack.

The fourth inquiry by the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the global chemical weapons watchdog, said the Syrian army carried out a toxic gas attack in the Qmenas area of Idlib province on March 16, 2015.

In an announcement on the state news agency SANA, the Syrian foreign ministry denied the accusations of using toxic chemical materials during military operations and said there is no tangible evidence for the international inquiry's findings.
