Chlorine gas was probably used in an attack in February in Saraqib in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib, the global chemical weapons agency Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said on Wednesday.

OPCW did not say which side used the banned munitions, but that laboratory tests confirmed the presence of chlorine.
