Evidence strongly suggests a poison gas attack on Syrian rebels on Aug. 21 was undertaken by Syrian government forces, Human Rights Watch said on Tuesday after an investigation.

The US-based rights group said in a report issued in New York, it had reached that conclusion after analyzing witness accounts, information of the likely source of the attacks, remnants of the weapons used and medical records of victims.

The United States says the poison gas attack on rebel areas killed more than 1,400 people.
