The Syrian government denies it was responsible for the chlorine gas attack attack in Idlib.

Syrian doctors, confirming what activists reported after the attack on 16 March, told the UN Security Council that helicopters were heard flying above the village of Sarmin.

There was then a thud and an overpowering smell of bleach before dozens of people began arriving at the local hospital with breathing difficulties.

The US and other council members have long blamed the government of Bashar al-Assad of carrying out chemical weapons attacks.
