Inside Syria Media Center military correspondents report al-Nusra’s terrorists exploded ‘a bomb carrier’ (a special car loaded with arms and munition used as a mobile bomb, from Suicide Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Device). The car belonged to the Syrian Arab army (SAA). The Government Army was going to move towards Shakhatir village.
This has just been confirmed by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) radicals. HTS Released pictures of the #SVBIED attack.
SVBIED’s can be roughly divided into two main categories; some are used primarily to kill the occupants of the vehicle (often as an assassination) and others are used as a means to kill, injure or damage people and buildings outside the vehicle. The latter type may be either parked up (the vehicle disguising the bomb and allowing the bomber to get away) or the vehicle might be used to deliver the bomb (often as part of a suicide bombing).
It is commonly used as a weapon of terrorism or guerrilla warfare to kill people near the blast site or to damage buildings or other property. Car bombs act as their own delivery mechanisms and can carry a relatively large amount of explosives without attracting suspicion; in larger vehicles and trucks, weights of at least 7,000 pounds (3,200 kg) have been used. Car bombs are activated in a variety of ways, including opening the vehicle’s doors, starting the engine, depressing the accelerator or brake pedals or simply lighting a fuse or setting a timing device.The gasoline in the vehicle’s fuel tank may make the explosion of the bomb more powerful by dispersing and igniting the fuel.
