A Syrian army helicopter dropped two barrel bombs on a camp for internally displaced persons in the northwestern province of Idlib, residents said Wednesday, as video footage appeared to show charred and dismembered bodies.A man in another video of the Abedin camp, which houses people who had escaped fighting in neighboring Hama province, said as many as 75 people had died.Syrian state media did not mention the bombing. It also came in the wake of clashes between the Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, and the Syrian Rebel Front, a leading mainstream unit of the Free Syrian Army, in Idlib province.At the site of the barrel bomb attack, one piece of video footage shows rebel fighters walking amid the destruction, enraged that the two militias were engaged in infighting. The clashes erupted this week when members of the Syria Rebel Front attempted to arrest what it said were a number of fighters wanted for engaging in criminal acts, but were prevented from doing so by Nusra Front militants.
