Hospitals in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo are overwhelmed with casualties, an international aid group warned Tuesday, as government warplanes blasted opposition areas of the city as part of a withering three-day air assault that has killed more than 100 people.

The intensified air campaign, which one activist group in the city called "unprecedented," suggests President Bashar Assad's government is trying to crush opposition in the contested city, Syria's largest, ahead of an international peace conference scheduled for late January in Switzerland.

'Barrel bombs' just another symbol of brutality in Syrian civil war

Dropped from low-flying helicopters on civilian streets in the Northern city of Aleppo, the bombs are crudely packed with nails, gasoline and TNT.

Children as young as 1 year old died over the weekend, according to a leading opposition group.

"A helicopter came, and suddenly out of nowhere a barrel hit this area. About 30 people died, including women and children who were waiting their turn so they can get the bread," said one witness, who claimed the attacks came while food was bring distributed.

On Tuesday, the aid group Doctors Without Borders said that more than 100 people have been killed in three days of barrel bomb attacks by Syrian army helicopters.

"For the past three days, the helicopters have been targeting different areas, among them a school and the Haydarya roundabout, where people wait for public transport vehicles," said Aitor Zabalgogeazkoa, MSF coordinator in Syria.

"Repeated attacks often lead to chaos and make it more difficult to treat the wounded, therefore increasing the number of fatalities," he said in a statement

Saudi ready to act on Iran, Syria,'with or without' West

The West's policies on Iran and Syria are a "dangerous gamble" and Saudi Arabia is prepared to act on its own to safeguard security in the region, a top Saudi diplomat said.

"This is a dangerous gamble, about which we cannot remain silent, and will not stand idly by," he wrote.

"The West has allowed one regime to survive and the other to continue its program for uranium enrichment, with all the consequent dangers of weaponization," he wrote.

It is a very dangerous gamble that the US took in not proceeding with military intervention. The Saudi have the funds to put together the army and the equipment to let them use but will they pull the trigger? Israel has also been in talks with Saudi Arabia, I wonder if there is some joint efforts in the making?

I cannot imagine what goes through Assads head to make decisions to make barrel bombs to kill some 500 people, then say to the Pope he wants to TALK about peace.
