Agonising Photos Show The Syrian Children Burned By 'Napalm Bombs'

Harrowing images of child victims of ‘napalm bombs’ have emerged after suspected government warplanes carried out several airstrikes in Syria's Hama province on Thursday.

A large number of children injured by incendiary bombs were taken to the Syrian-American Medical Society hospital in Hama, president of the aid group Dr. Zaher Sahloul said.

One of the shocking photographs shows a young boy sat upright on a hospital bed with horrific burns. His hair has been singed and his clothes have been cut away from his body.

Dr Sahloul said on Twitter: 'This is not a victim of American Napalm in Vietnam but a Syrian child victim of Assad's Napalm in Hama.'

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed a series of airstrikes since early on Thursday had killed at least 25 civilians, including six children, in northern Hama province.
