Britain calls Syrian barrel bomb attacks a war crime

Published: 01.13.14, 21:21 / Israel News

Britain on Monday accused Syria's government of committing "yet another war crime" by spraying civilian areas with barrel bombs – oil drums or cylinders which are packed with explosives and metal fragments and dropped from aircraft.


Human rights groups say the improvised devices have killed hundreds of civilians in the civil war between President Bashar Assad's government and rebel forces. The United States has also condemned their use. Syrian authorities say they are battling "armed terrorist groups". (Reuters)
