HRW condemns incendiary weapons use in Syria

Rights group says it has documented at least 56 attacks with such weapons, some targeting civilians.

    Human Rights Watch has called on the international community to condemn the Syrian government for using incendiary weapons.

    Incendiary weapons are classified as conventional and they have caused more deaths in Syria than chemical weapons, which the government is believed to have used on August 21.
