Syrian Observatory: Syrian army drops barrel bombs in southwest

BEIRUT - The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, reported on Friday that the Syrian military had dropped more than a dozen barrel bombs on rebel-held territory in the southwest, its first use of the munition there in about a year.
It represents an escalation in the army's days-old assault in the area northeast of Deraa that has so far included artillery bombardment but only limited use of airpower.
