Syria activists: 2000 killed by barrel bombs in 2014

Published: 05.30.14, 14:48 / Israel News

Crude bombs dropped by Syrian government forces on rebel-held parts of the northern city of Aleppo have killed nearly 2,000 people so far this year, an activist group said Friday.


The grim figure is the latest addition to the deadly tally from Syria's civil war, which has killed more than 162,000 people, according to activists. The crude bombs - known as barrel bombs - are shrapnel-packed explosive devices that Syrian forces have been rolling out of helicopters over rebel-held neighborhoods. (AP)
