You may remember this video of a truck bomb laden with 9 tonnes of explosives that rocked an army base in Wardak, Afghanistan. On June 17, 2013 Syrian rebels targeted the town of al Douwairinah located near Aleppo airport with a car (maybe also a truck) loaded with 6 tonnes of explosives. While compared to the blast in Afghanistan, the Syrian vehicle only delivered 2/3 of the power, the explosion was still massive and shock wave could be felt from far away.
60 people have reportedly died in the blast. The group suspected of orchestrating the explosion was once again the notorious Al Qaeda armed wing Jabhat Al-Nusra, infamous for recent beheadings throughout Syria. Jabhat Al-Nusra was designated by the United States of America and the United Nations as a terrorist organisation, but that of course doesn’t stop Kenyan from sending them weapons of mass destruction.
