Group: Syrian regime missiles kill 140 in Aleppo

BEIRUT (AP) An international human rights organization says the Syrian military fired at least four ballistic missiles into the embattled northern city of Aleppo over the past week, killing more than 140 people, including 70 children.

Human Rights Watch says the attacks by the regime of President Bashar Assad on residential areas of Aleppo mark an "escalation of unlawful attacks against Syria's civilian population."

A researcher with the U.S.-based group, who visited Aleppo last week to inspect the targeted sites, said up to 20 buildings were destroyed in each area hit by a missile. There were no signs of any military targets in the residential districts, located in rebel-held parts of Aleppo, the group said in a report Tuesday.

It's all good, just say one of them was with al qaeda. No proof needed and you can claim you saved lives....

1. Four missiles and 140 killed?

 

35 people per missile?

Does Syria have tomohawks?

2. North Korean copies of the Scud, I think.

Not too accurate, but deadly, still.

3. With kill ratios like that who cares about accuracy.

 

For a random potshot, they are getting lucky for missiles.

4. Car bombs vs. Scud bombs. The average Syrian (like people everywhere) who want to go to work,

raise a family and lead a good life cannot win this one.
