BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – A suicide car bomb attack by Al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists against the Syrian Arab Army in eastern Idlib province has hit its mark, reportedly resulting in the death of an entire squad of soldiers.

On Monday, the Al-Qaeda affiliate militia Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly called and more commonly known as Jabhat al-Nusra) targeted a gathering of Syrian troops at a small hamlet near the city of Abu Duhur in Idlib’s eastern countryside with a bomb-laden vehicle.

The car bomb (shown above) appears to have approached the hamlet undetected, moving right into the center of the gathering location before its driver detonated his payload.

According to reports, at least five soldiers of the Syrian Army – more or less representing an entire infantry squad – were killed in the explosion.

Despite the loss of life suffered as a result of the attack, the Syrian Army managed to seize the city of Abu Duhur on Monday following a two-day battle with Islamist militias.

Big mistake, in the middle of the desert photos show the absurdity not having a vigil day and night, they could have seen him from far. I’m shocked.


Yes, sad.
Hopefully al-Qaeda will get its just come-uppance.
