First explicit pictures of massive barrel bomb dropped on rebel zones in Syria

Media activists in Daraya, southern Damascus, have been posting dramatic videos of massive barrel bombs being dropped from helicopters on the rebel-held city over the past few weeks. The massive improvised armaments are well documented and are made from barrels packed with explosives. This video is described as showing a strike on January 31, and captures the ordnance being dropped from a helicopter.
