On November 10, an official of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) claimed that HTS’ vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) hit a convoy of the Russian military in Jableh city south of Lattakia.

According to the HTS-linked news agency Iba’a the, Russian convoy was targeted in Bustan al-Basha village north of Jableh city where the Russian Khmeimim airbase is located. Iba’a claimed that several Russian and Syrian soldiers were killed or injured in the supposed attack.

Earlier, Syrian pro-government sources confirmed that a booby trapped car exploded in Bustan al-Basha village. However, according to the sources, the explosion was so weak that it only damaged the booby trapped car itself and killed its driver. Moreover, the sources denied that a convoy of the Russian or Syrian Army was in Bustan al-Basha when the incident occurred.

The failed attack is likely an attempt by HTS to score some sort of “victory” in order to gain more public support and to reinforce its unstable situation in Idlib governorate. This may help HTS in its “war” with Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement in the province.

    If the man had a car bomb and detonated it, and there were no Syrian/Russian convoy in that village at the time, what was the man aiming for?

    Shouldn’t HTS be focused on its new enemy, Nour-al-Din-al-Zinki?

    It is a pity that a christian nation like Russia helps a medieval tyranny…

      I suppose it would be better for you for head chopping islamic militants to take over the country & kill all other minoities like Christian, Yazidis or Druze. These communities have be devastated by the extremists. While the Assad government certainly isnt perfect & needs too implement changes it is secular allowing people to live & practice their own faiths. The alternative is a jihadi nightmare state.

      Let me rephrase that for you:

      It is a pity that a Christian nation like the US is helping a medieval tyranny (Saudi Arabia) installing a medieval nightmare (ISIS, Al Qaida, all the other Jihadi headchopper groups) in a secular nation that will destroy Christian and other minorities that have been around for thousands of years.

      A bit windy, but let us not forget that Iraq used to have large Christian minorities, until the US invasion of 2003. After which the sectarian violence absolutely managed to destroy these communities. These communities survived 2000 years in which Islamic rule, Mongol invasions, wars between the Ottomans and Persians, colonial rule and Saddam Hussein did not destroy them. Then comes the US and unleashes a can of worms that sees them decimated to a shadow of their former selves. And the US dares to call itself a Christian nation.
