The Syrian military has begun targeting opposition areas with a new type of cluster munitions rockets which is larger and more powerful than others in its arsenal, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said on Wednesday.The attack occurred while a Syrian government delegation was in Geneva for peace talks with the opposition.HRW said each of the rockets used this month contained up to 72 anti-personnel bomblets which are heavier and deadlier than types previously used in Syria's nearly three-year-old conflict.HRW said two civilians were killed and at least 10 wounded in the attacks this month.
