When a barrel bomb strikes the ground in Aleppo one of the few certainties is that a military target won't be in the vicinity, according to a report issued Monday by Human Rights Watch.The report documents the recurring use of barrel bombs and other unguided high explosive bombs on residential and commercial areas, with much of the devastating results apparent in Aleppo neighborhoods.The satellite imagery, for example, shows over 30 likely airstrike sites in the Masaken Hanano and Jouret Awad neighborhoods of Aleppo, in which more than 100 buildings were destroyed.Witnesses from Masaken Hanano told HRW that while a rebel barracks was located in the neighborhood, neither this location nor any other military target were near the areas pounded by the barrel bombs.
