One day after what the New York Times describes as "one of the worst chemical bombings in Syria," graphic images show the horrifying aftermath of the deadly gas attack.

An opposition-run Health Department at the rebel-held attack site in Idlib Province said 69 people -- including children -- had died in Tuesday's chemical attack, while some humanitarian groups are recounting a death toll up to 100.

While the attack is believed to have been a Syrian government-led strike, the Syrian military released a statement blaming insurgents, saying the army is accused of using toxic weapons "every time they fail to achieve the goals of their sponsors."
