BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – A suicide bomber allegedly blew up his vehicle well before reaching his intended target in southern Idlib on Thursday, the Sputnik News Agency’s Arabic-language version reported.

Citing a field source in the area, the Sputnik report claimed that the reason for the suicide bomber’s early detonation was likely due to confusion.

In particular, the source alleges that the suicide bomber was likely confused after his vehicle came under heavy gunfire from the Syrian Army soldiers that were defending the town of Sukayk in southern Idlib.

Apparently, the suicide bomber lost sight of the target and ended up detonating his explosives far from the intended site in northern Sukayk.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their jihadist allies often resort to suicide bombings before their fighters storm an area; this has been especially true during the latest clashes in the Idlib and Hama governorates.

When the suicide attacks are successful, the jihadists are able to take advantage of the Syrian military’s fractured front-lines and retake areas they previously lost.

Perhaps in the future the Commander should go with the first time bomber and supervise so that he gets it right.

With front lines being so open the visibility of VBIED is not a sudden surprise. We all have seen in the earlier battles in Iraq Daesh sent 100s of VBIED against Iraqi / Peshmerga and took out a huge number of their opponents with huge blasts and they always improvised their explosive cocktail. It was a terror as most of the battle were street fighting with absolutely no visibility of what & where to expect. In Hama & Idlib we can see that the terrorists do not enjoy that advantage and are being cherry picked by SAA / Russians! The… Read more »

LLS : I don’t agree with you : no way I would pour Petrol on the dead Jihadis! This is bad for environment! And ecology? C’mon! RECYCLING MATTERS! Jihadis can be reused as food for pigs, and you can send pictures of the pigs’ meal to their buddies. Moreover, if you cremate them, they may end reincarnated by Lord Ganesha, very bad! BTW, don’t forget to use clippers and shave their hairs : pigs don’t digest hairs. You can always donate their hair to associations making wigs for kids enduring chemotherapy, this would be a good did. If you feel… Read more »

The last possibility ending as a double insult for the jihadi 🙂

Good Thoughts Lead to Good Deeds!! All our actions are an outcome of our thoughts. Even an involuntary action of swatting a mosquito that was biting you or a house fly that is continuously buzzing you. The need to kill or to just shoo it away is instantly decided by you. Just think about it. If the Holy book that the Jihadis are following for over 1500 years now had not advocated such extreme violence then there is a possibility that its believers & followers would not have become such extremists.
