In an interview with AFP, Assad said his forces could not have been responsible for the strikes using the nerve agent sarin, which killed at least 87 in rebel held Idlib province, because his regime in Damascus had given up all its chemical weapons.
Mr Corbyn said: "An investigation must take place as to who used those chemical weapons".
While the regime did comply with destroying numerous stockpiles as well as the infrastructure to produce them, removing over 1,290 metric tons of chemical weapons - including sarin, VX and sulfur mustard, a precursor to mustard gas - according to former defense minister Moshe Ya'alon, Israel is under the impression that the regime cheated global inspectors and kept residual amounts of sarin.
"Our impression is that the West, mainly the United States, is hand-in-glove with the terrorists", Assad said, according to the wire service.
British scientists said sarin or a sarin-like substance was used in the suspected chemical attack in Syria, the British ambassador to the United Nations said Wednesday.

"The only information the world have had till this moment is published by al Qaeda branch", he said.
