6 Ton Car Bomb Explosion in al Douwairinah Near Aleppo Airport

6 Ton Car Bomb Explosion in al Douwairinah Near Aleppo Airport

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.

  1. Wow, what a way to go. When I die I either want to be struck by lightening or be at ground zero of a nuclear explosion… Actually any death is fine as long as its not at the hands of a dirty rag head and as long as someone gets it on film.

    1. For me the worst way to die would be in some sort of huge disaster where your body is just counted as a number. Better to die as an individual so your remembered.

        1. I’d like to think my loved ones and friends would still remember me. I don’t believe all is over once you die, just the flesh dies. Everyone has their own beliefs.

          1. “you” do not exist after death. the id, ego, personality, thoughts, feelings and emotions all die with the body as they are all physical processes in the brain. everything that made you “you” is gone. there is no heaven or hell or god or anything, only the continuance of energy flow. the only thing that lives is the conscious energy that powered your body, which then goes on to power someone or something else. the life you left behind, and everything you were mean absolutely nothing when you are free of the physical world.
            this is what I experienced when I left my body. I was aware of everything yet completely detached from all thoughts and feelings, I simply existed as conscious energy.

          2. @obliterator, I respectfully submit that you can’t prove a negative. In other words, you can’t prove that something doesn’t exist, be it God or life after death.

        1. it all depends on morals. ive read both sides of this argument and i, dont mean to sound like a prick, but agree on both. Who the fuck will care about how they died and what you remembered for. But also wouldnt you morally want to be remembered as someone who at least tried making others and yourself benefit from your life?
          Very strong and interesting topic though.

  2. The static shot of the broken building in front of the camera tells as much of a story as the bomb itself. What was once a relatively well to do country by Middle East standards is now a broken ruin. I’m sure some western contractors are hoping to make a killing once they can get their paws in there.

    I would like to make a special mention to the camera man who set his camera facing the wrong way, thereby missing the greatest footage he will ever take, unless he decides to shoot himself on camera for his stupid error. You sir, are a moron.

    1. Correct me if I’m wrong, but if you listen closely you can hear some “Allahu Ackbar”‘s in the distance. I’m also wondering what’s up with the camera man. Was he pointing the wrong way…or was he just shooting random footage of the area when all of the sudden *BAM!*?

      1. That there is no moanful Cat Stevens dubbed over the top or jihadist watermarks does make me wonder. But put yourself there. Your street just got turned to dust, including the lady on the corner with her twelve kids. Do you:
        a) run to help
        b) run to change your underwear
        c) run to check your camera which happened to be recording the general debris-scape

        Seems suss to me. Although granted, I’m considering these questions from the perspective of someone who doesn’t currently live in a war zone.

        Having said that, the blast wave is very spectacular. At least he managed to capture that and the subsequent shower of blast spoil.

        As for the jihadi yodel, I think I’m yet to see a video out of Syria that doesn’t feature it at some point.

        1. I’ve got to agree with you 100%. By the way I am semi new to the site and wanted to say hello to everyone. Been a fan of BG and Mark’s work for almost a year now just never commented much…wanted to say thank you to everyone that contributes (and donates) to keep this site going.

  3. One can only hope the current warmongers in the West can at least see the wisdom in steering clear of a conflict with Russia over Syria. So far, this seems not to be the case, eh? Well, from the perspective of those entrenched in the military-industrial complex; “nothing ventured, nothing gained”, right?

  4. Ancient cities of Damascus and Bosra, the oasis of Palmyra, the castles of Crac des Chevaliers and Qal’at Salah El-Din, and the ancient villages of northern Syria had all been declared endangered Syrian heritage sites.

    1. Thats not a concern for this vandals, they even destroy religious sites like the Wahabits in Mekka and Medina. The birthplace of Mohammad was demolished, or the house of one of Mohammads wifes, Kadijah, the mother of Islam, was razed to the ground, and a public toilet was built upon the ruins, lol. The grave of the Prophet is also in danger.
      The hypocritical reason for this is, that muslims should not worship material idols, but if you think this idea to the end, then the inscribing of the word “Mohammad” should be sentenced and punished by beheading. 😉

  5. WOW.. Nice vid.
    Took me back in time basic training grenade quals.
    Toss 3 nades far as you can then take cover and wait for the tiny bits of everything rain down you. Sounded just like that.. Well a whole lot smaller just like that……
