Syrian rebels face 'collective punishment'

Town in Idlib province suffers intense bombardment that Free Syrian Army sees as "collective punishment".

    The Free Syrian Army calls it collective punishment - the targeting of people the government thinks are helping the rebels.
     
    Residents of one town in Idlib say this is why they have suffered intense bombing over the past two weeks.

    Al Jazeera's Sue Turton managed to get into Abu Dahuur to see the destruction.
