Beirut: At least 100 people including children were killed and scores left sick, suffering respiratory problems in a chemical attack in rebel-held northwestern Syria on Tuesday.

The death toll may rise as per the Union of Medical Care Organizations.

“Any sort of report of use of chemical weapons, especially on civilians are extremely alarming and disturbing. Any use of chemical weapons anywhere constitutes a threat to peace and security and is a serious violation of international law,” said U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric.

Blaming the forces of President Bashar al-Assad, Syria's opposition said with such attacks no peace talks are possible.

The Syrian military, however, denied its involvement in the deadly attack. "Army never used chemical weapons. Some terrorist groups could be behind the attack," said Syrian military.
