Activists said dozens were hit when Assad's forces fired mortar shells containing chemical agents.
Four Iranians are also reportedly dead after rebels forces fired at two vehicles belonging to the Syria regime near Homs.
Turkey said last week it has verified through tests on Syrian war casualties chemical weapons have been used by Syrian forces, and further tests are being carried out to verify the evidence.
Washington has said it views the use of chemical weapons in Syria as a "red line" but wants proof before taking any action in response.
