Syria Assad Regime List of Barrel Bomb Attack on Civilians

Syria Assad regime barrel bombs attack on civilian area indiscriminately

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has mercilessly dropped barrel bombs full of TNT, shrapnel on civilian heavily-populated areas of syria … Children little bodies were blown into pieces…innocent civilians were buried alive in their own home…

A barrel bomb is a type of improvised explosive device used by the Syrian Air Force during the Syrian civil war. They are typically made from a barrel that has been filled with High Explosives, with possibly shrapnel and/or oil, and then dropped from a helicopter. Due to the large amount of explosives that can be packed into a barrel the resulting detonation can be devastating. The Syrian regime often drops the bombs on urban areas leading to high civilian death tolls. There have been thousands of instances of the use of barrel bombs during the Syrian civil war, as reported by the news and activists, including:

2012

In August 2012, report of a barrel bomb being dropped on the Hamidiya neighborhood of Homs.
