In the Spring of 2012, the Syrian army began dropping 'barrel bombs' on rebel-held areas. Their use proliferated through 2013 and 2014.

Crudely made and packed with explosives and metal scrap, these bombs weigh up to 400 pounds. The blast radius reaches several hundred feet.

Bombs are dropped from a high altitude. Unguided, these bombs inflict massive civilian casualties.
