Syria's government is trading accusations with rebel forces over new reports of a gas attack on a village north of Damascus.
This unverified footage purports to show the aftermath of a chlorine gas attack in the town of Kafr Zeita. Opposition groups say six people died in the attack, which coincided with a reported barrel bombing from government helicopters. (Via YouTube / Kafr Zeita)
Syrian state TV paints a very different picture of the attack, which they say killed two people and wounded more than 100. Al Arabiya reports state media blame the attack on the radical al-Nusra Front and accuses the group of plotting two more attacks on civilian targets.
