We are not sure how it ended up in Syria, but it is particularly dangerous because old munitions are less likely to detonate on impact and as a result, the duds that are left on the ground remain dangerous for civilians and kids, for weeks, months and sometimes years,” said Bolopion. Activists say cluster bomb remnants were found in several towns in Idlib province and around Homs, Aleppo and the capital Damascus. http://www.euronews.com/2012/10/14/syria-air-force-using-cluster-bombs-on-rebel-held-areas-says-hrw/ [/quote]
Over the last few days there's been a marked increase in the number of cluster bomb remains being filmed in Syria, and until yeterday most were filmed around Maarrat al-Numan, along the main highway that connects central Syria (Hama, Homs, then Damascus and Daraa) to northern Syria (Idlib, Aleppo), which has recently come under opposition control.
The concentration of reports from that area suggested at first that the use of cluster bombs was related to attempts to regain an important supply route to Aleppo.
The following video shows four examples of cluster bombs used in the area:
However, in the last 48 hours multiple videos have been posted online showing cluster bomb remains in locations across Syria.
In all of the examples they appear to show RBK-250 cluster bombs with AO-1 SCH bomblets.
