The residents of a village located not far from Afrin were injured from the use of a chemical weapon, doctor from the local hospital said.
The doctor said two of them are criticial, and at the moment they are trying to determine what gas was used, SANA agency reported.
According to AFN, there are suspicions that the invading Turkish army used chlorine gas, a chemical weapon.

SANA notes that dozens of people became victims of artillery bombardments in Afrin, most of them women and children.
