Al-Nusra and Ahrar ash-Sham have been engaged in an inter-terrorist war amongst each for the control of Salqin in Idlib province. The town is located near the border with Turkey.
The two respective terrorist groups after a week of battling decided to meet in the center of the town to resolve the issue.
With the groups meeting, they arrived with their SUV's and other heavy vehicles and equipment. Russian intelligence were well aware of the meeting that was to take place and launched 2 ballistic missiles that hit the gathering area.

It has been reported that over 20 of the terrorists from both groups were killed, with a further 30+ injured. Most of the heavy vehicles were also destroyed.

Since the Russian intervention in Syria on September 30, the Syrian Arab Army have made rapid gains and have almost completely liberated neighboring Latakia province. This has opened a path for the Syrian Arab Army to push into the Army of Conquest stronghold of Idlib province, that was taken over by the coalition in a rapid invasion that began in Turkey on March 2015. The Army of Conquest are an axis of terrorist groups comprising mostly of Al-Qaeda affiliate, the Al-Nusra Front, along with their allies in Ahrar ash-Sham and the Free Syrian Army.

Good movie script. Infighting was resolved after Nusra checkpoints were taken by Ahrar. No big explosion.
