So many twisted minds, indeed!
Having to do with what you saw demonstrated (I can’t authenticate video without wider cooperation from media) in the above video:
Syrian government forces dropped barrel bombs on rebel-held districts of Aleppo Wednesday, killing 13 people as they pressed an assault southeast of the northern city, a monitor said.

The video preceding this section’s quotation features one explosion.
