US: Assad regime fires special bombs
US State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Noland said that the Assad regime used barrel bombs, similar to napalm, on Syrian rebels.


The American government has confirmed that the Assad regime posted missiles on launching mounts but did not say if they were actually fired. Earlier, the New York Times quoted American sources as saying that Assad's forces fired Scud missiles in the rebel-controlled areas in Northern Syria. (Yitzhak Benhorin, Washington)
