Parachute Bombs Target Opposition-Held Town in Northern Hama Province

Pro-regime media said fighter jets targeted the rebel-held towns of Kafr Zita and al-Lataminah, both located in the northern Hama province, on April 16. Opposition activists filmed the moment four parachute bombs struck the town of al-Lataminah.

Pro-Syrian media first reported on the use of parachute bombs by the Russian Air Force in Aleppo in May 2016, and the bunker-busting munitions have continued to be used in more recent months to target rebel-strongholds in the Idlib and Hama provinces.
