Bashar al-Assad’s airmen laugh as they drop barrel bombs on fellow Syrians

New footage has emerged showing Syrian aircrew using barrel bombs, one of the most feared weapons in President Bashar al-Assad’s arsenal.

The video footage, which contradicts Mr Assad’s claim that no munitions of this kind have ever been used by his forces, shows an airman crouching inside a Syrian military helicopter, chatting to his neighbour as he lights the fuse of a barrel bomb.

Once the white touch paper is burning, the man casually pushes the weapon out of the aircraft and sends it hurtling towards the ground.

    I’m not supposed to be sympathetic with any of the victims, am I? …because as much harm as they have all caused others, I’m just not.

      The victims are ISIS.

    All for the love of a Prophet. Did m0E the cRaZy predict any of this?

    A hit piece reminiscent of the left’s hit-pieces against Israel.

    Has HRW’s Ken Roth blamed the Jews yet? Has Obama?

    It looks like ISIS is having the last laugh.

    Apart from some occasional accusation of chemical or inceniary content, barrel bombs appear to be blast bombs like WW2 “blockbusters”.

    ” … the man casually pushes the weapon out of the aircraft …”
    Is there supposed to be some sort of formal ceremony?

    Only watched this once. Not sure I saw anyone “laughing”, as in evil cackles of glee.
