‘Ninja Bomb’ Strike Eliminates Senior Horas Al-Din Commanders In Idlib City (Videos)

Donate

A suspected U.S. drone strike on Idlib’s city center has killed two senior commanders of al-Qaeda-affiliated Horas al-Din: Qassam al-Urduni and Bilal al-Sanani.

The strike targeted the commanders’ SUV as it was passing on a road in the western part of Idlib city. The SUV, a silver Hyundai Santa Fe, was struck with what appears to be two U.S.-made AGM-114R9X Hellfire missile.

The AGM-114R9X Hellfire, dubbed “Ninja Bomb,” is armed with a kinetic warhead with pop-out blades. The missile has been deployed in secret since 2017, with its existence revealed in 2019.

Pro-militant sources revealed that Qassam al-Urduni was the general military commander of Horas al-Din. Bilal al-Sanani, on the other hand, was the commander of the group’s al-Badiya [desert] Army. Both terrorists were Jordanian citizens.

In December of last year, a U.S. drone strike killed Abu Khadija al-Urduniyi, a senior Jordanian commander of Horas al-Din in northern Idlib. Abu Khadija’s SUV was also struck with an AGM-114R9X Hellfire missile.

Qassam al-Urduni, Bilal al-Sanani and Abu Khadija al-Urduniyi were reportedly former commanders of al-Qaeda’s Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham.

The assassination of al-Urduni and al-Sanani is without a doubt a serious blow to Horas al-Din. However, this attack will not likely affect the terrorist group’s influence in Greater Idlib. Recently, the group and other al-Qaeda factions formed a new operations room in the northwestern Syrian region.

  • Pave Way IV

    OK… how many other people watched the first 15 seconds of the drone video and thought the engine sound was being made by the drone’s motor, instead of the guy’s motorbike? [embarrassed…] [Paveway raises hand]

    Poor Hyundai.

    • Liberal guy

      Yes poor santa fe nice car santa fe though

  • FlorianGeyer

    The terrorist commanders do love their expensive SUV ‘Pimp mobile’s ‘ everywhere on the globe.

    Perhaps the commanders would live longer if they alternate their modes of transport to random vehicles.

    • Liberal guy

      Expensive? Santa fe is a budget car. I rode in it as its a comman man’s car what I felt bad the poor car is destroyed pal these cowards now drove in budget cars so they cannot be easily detected. Many times the so called formar caliph that bastard also rode in comman cars until he was really killed in 2017 by a Russian airstrike. And killed by the Americans is there false propaganda just like bin laden.

      • FlorianGeyer

        ‘Common cars’ are relative to the wealth of the society they are sold to, and people in Idlib are mostly struggling to survive.

        • Liberal guy

          Yes u are right pal but they were not comman terrorists

          • FlorianGeyer

            I suppose a range Rover would be more classy for a terrorist leader , but they are not very reliable in harsh conditions. Great for the school Run though :)

          • Liberal guy

            A James bond British suv sure

    • Liberal guy

      Did u noticed in the video the wahhabi traitor was blaming the Russians calling russi tayyara for the attack.well very loyal slaves these bastards are to their masters.i won’t be surprise if these cowards blame assad and assad tayyara (drone) for assaination

      • Tommy Jensen

        Maybe it was the Russians? You never know with military news, always faked and angled.

        • Liberal guy

          A ninja bomb by the Russians?

        • Liberal guy

          And who is saying the Russians a terrorist scum?

      • occupybacon

        Probably the same guy that gave info to US

        • Liberal guy

          The good thing is the bastards are dead whether this fool blamed on an assad drone

    • occupybacon

      Probably they track their cell phones or radio communications or have some guys inside that stick a trackind device on any car the boss would use.

  • John Wallace

    So what are US drones doing flying over Idlib. Checking for working oil wells that need protecting. Did Russia / Syria say it was OK to fly in their controlled airspace.

    • occupybacon

      I’m sure they said it was OK

      • John Wallace

        Must have. More goes on behind closed doors than we are ever allowed to know.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Well It’s definitely a US strike because no one else uses these type of missiles.
    It’s pretty gory way to kill people by all accounts but the missile purposely minimises unwanted civilian casualties.

  • Tommy Jensen

    All our boys returned to their home base without a single scratch after hitting their targets with a pint-point precision strike within 10cm with our new technology which Russia dont have.
    Thus we were also sending a signal on the global strategic and tactical front to all our enemies who wish to do America harm on our own soil!

    • Shawn

      WTF r u talking about ? Lots of countries produce drones which have that kind of technology. Also your “boys” are not going home anytime soon, not as long as Trump keeps his greedy eyes on Syrian oil.

  • Boxman

    LOL first they armed and supported these guys, now they (allegedly) bomb them. I wish my government would just be on the right side from the start, but hey, this is better than what we were doing before.

    I’ll take it.

    • palegreendot

      Well, that was Jihadi-in-Chief Obama, not Trump. The Muslim Brotherhood loving apologist for Islam who admitted to making Libya a “s***-show”, and authorized CIA Operation Timber Sycamore, which has been “credited” with killing or wounding up to 100,000 Syrian soldiers and their allies. That’s correct, 100,000.

      In other words, Obama is a mass murderer who has destroyed nations and destabilized entire regions (including Europe).
