Hama: As Syrians are dealing with Russia-backed cluster bombs and US-led coalition air strikes, opposition parties said that civilians were recently targeted with deadly ‘napalm bombing’ ordered by President Bashar al-Assad that killed 25 people including six children.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, government warplanes hit the Syrian province of Hama killing several people and leaving many others with severe burns and injuries.
Those injured in the ghastly bombing were taken to the nearby Syrian-American Medical Society hospital. President of the humanitarian aid group in Syria, Dr Zaher Sahloul, tweeted, “This is not a victim of American Napalm in Vietnam but a Syrian child victim of Assad’s Napalm in Hama.”
Shocking photos of the victims of ‘napalm bombing’ in Syria showed children with severe burns being carried to hospital. One of the images showed a boy sitting on the hospital bed in shock with horrifying burns.
Other images show children covered in dirt and blood while they are taken to the hospital. In one photograph that has emerged on Twitter, a girl can be seen sitting on the hospital bed, covered in dirt as another kid burnt by the bombing curls up besides her.
Although Syrian government has not verified the claims of ‘napalm bombs’ being used in the air strikes, it has been proven that the government forces do use some kind of chemical weapons.
