(REUTERS) Syria’s government and rebels accused each other of launching a deadly chemical attack near the northern city of Aleppo on Tuesday in what would, if confirmed, be the first use of such weapons in the two-year-old conflict.

Syria’s state news agency SANA said the rebels had launched a missile, while the rebels said the government had fired a long-range missile with “chemical agents.”

“Terrorists fired a rocket containing chemical substances in the Khan al-Assal area of rural Aleppo,” SANA said.
