US-backed forces thwarted a “mass” suicide attack on a “displaced persons” camp in Syria on Thursday.
According to US CENTCOM, the Syrian Democratic Forces stopped two vehicles full of ISIS terrorists tied up with explosives who were planning to detonate themselves in the al-Hol refugee camp.
The first vehicle exploded prematurely about 12 miles outside the camp, and SDF troops soon approached and stopped the second vehicle.
“Two men got out of the second vehicle wearing suicide vests. One detonated his vest. Syrian Democratic Forces fired and killed the second man. The second vehicle was rigged with at least 50 kilograms of explosives,” CENTCOM announced in a statement.
