More than 30 Palestinians died in an alleged chemical weapons attack that is said to have killed hundreds near the Syrian capital of Damascus on Wednesday, Palestinian news agency Ma'an cited relatives as saying Saturday.

Eleven members of a family from the West Bank city of Jenin were among the victims of the reported attack, according to a relative of the al-Hurani family.

Ma'an cited another relative as saying 20 members of a Palestinian family from Nazareth had also been killed in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta on Wednesday.
