150 girls got poisoned by a toxic gas at their high school in Afghanistan's northern state of Balkh.

The teachers and students of the Kharti Khorasan Girls' High School in Mazar-i-Sharif were hospitalized after they got poisoned by a toxic gas which was sprayed at their classrooms.

Chief Physician of Mazar-i-Sharif Hospital Noor Muhammad Faiz said that the girls were in good condition.

Faiz noted that two teachers were also poisoned by the toxic gas attack about which an investigation has been launched.

No group has claimed the responsibility for the incident so far.

More than 200 girls had also been poisoned last month at the Sultan Raziye Girls' High School in the capital Kabul.

The Taliban also previously poisoned several girls by adding toxic substance into the water tanks in some girls' schools across the country.
