Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said an alleged chemical attack in Syria’s Idlib province was “100 percent fabrication”, according to an interview with the Syrian President, as reported by the AFP.

Assad also said Syria’s military had given up all chemical weapons, AFP said on its Twitter account, quoting remarks in an interview with the Syrian president.

The United States and its allies say the Syrian military carried out the attack, something Syria has already denied.
