Civil society groups from across Syria have come together to urge an end to the barrel bomb attacks on civilians and all-inclusive peace talks as the only way to end the spread of ISIS.The campaign – called Planet Syria – brings together 85 nonviolent groups that represent over 17,000 Syrians. In February 2014 the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution condemning the use of barrel bombs, but since that time, a further 6,479 civilians, including over 1,800 children, have been killed in such attacks, according to the SNHR. Barrel bombs, the Planet Syria campaign says, are so imprecise that they represent no military advantage for the Syrian regime, the only party in the war that possesses the helicopters necessary to drop them.Salma Kahale, a Planet Syria organizer, said this universal support was vital to achieve peace in Syria.
