Based on amateur videos and first hands from the frontlines, the International Human Rights Watch group has accused the General Bashar al-Assad regime of resorting to use of cluster bombs to kill its own people.
This has been reported in nherld.co.nz of dated 15th of October 2012.
The cluster bombs were dropped mainly along a main north-south highway in western Syria which runs through Maaret al-Numan, a town that has been captured by rebels after fierce fighting.
The dropping of cluster bombs is banned by most nations because many of these bombs do not explode on impact and pose a serious thterat to civilian poulation - its use in Syria gives a feeling of desperation of those in power and a total disregard for its own people.
Already tension is mounting in the region with both Syria and Turkey sealing off their individual airspaces and declaring them out of bounds – Turkey, incidentally, back the rebels in Syria.
The situation in Syria is tense as rebels have taken over large rural stretches in the heavily populated western area, but are not able to oust the troops of General Assad from the urban centers.
