A mysterious explosion targeted a large jihadist gathering in the border town of Atmeh in the northern countryside of Idlib.

The militants who came from various Islamist groups including Faylaq Al-Sham and Harakat Nour El-Din Al-Zinki were mobilizing to be transported to the grinding front lines of Aleppo near the border crossing of Atmeh. 35 fighters have so far been confirmed dead while over 50 were wounded including several civilians and Turkish Army servicemen. A bus carrying dozens of militants was incinerated in the massive explosion.

The perpetrator of this act has yet to be known, but it is very likely that he was part of an ISIS sleeper cell operating in the fertile province. Many Islamic State sympathizers remained in Idlib following the group’s expulsion from the province in 2014 during the jihadist civil war.

They don’t know the cause–it could have been Syrian special forces.

Special forces don’t do kamikaze attacks with a suicide vest… They’ll use a laser to design the target and an aircraft will drop a LGB or some artillery will send a laser guided shell or rocket…
