As things stand today, the Assad regime is the worst human rights offender in the world, and one of the worst in modern history. It stands responsible for the overwhelming majority of the devastation and killing that Syria has witnessed since the onset of its prodemocracy revolution back in 2011. Air strikes and the use of barrel bombs have played a key role in helping the Assad regime overpower its opponents and wreak bloody havoc on their host communities. 

The Massacre 

An improvised unguided bomb typically made from a large barrel-shaped metal container filled with high explosives, possibly shrapnel, oil or chemicals, then dropped from a helicopter or airplane.
