0

BEIRUT: Syria’s government forces have begun using a powerful type of cluster munition rocket not previously seen in the country’s conflict, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said in a statement on Wednesday. The group said photos taken after a recent attack in the central city of Hama suggested the government had deployed 300 mm 9M55K surface-to-surface rockets, a Russian weapon that carries dozens of submunitions.
