Has President Assad’s Syrian Air Force dropped ‘barrel bombs’?

In a nut shell…..yes they have.

The extent of usage and destruction caused is difficult to confirm, after all this conflict is predominantly urban guerilla warfare at its most horrific. Shells, missiles, rockets, IED’s, VBIED’s, Technical’s and artillery pieces are used on all sides and all cause a large amount of destruction.

However, the Syrian Arab Army are dropping unguided ordnance. It is difficult to be sure that all videos claiming to show barrel bombs being dropped are actually that.

For this reason I have sourced a few video’s below that clearly show unguided ordnance being dropped from military aircraft that is difficult to disprove.
