Syrian opposition activists have claimed that rebel soldiers in the city of Homs have died after coming under some kind of gas attack.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights quoted activists in the central Syrian city as saying that a number of rebels died in two neighbourhoods on Sunday night after inhaling white smoke that came out of shells fired on the area.

“Activists from the city of Homs have reported that six rebel fighters were killed yesterday on the al-Khaldiya-al-Bayada frontier by a poisonous gas,” the rights group said in a statement.
