According to Washington Post, In the video footage, a massive explosion can then be seen in the Idlib countryside, alongside a picture of a bearded man believed to be Abusalha cradling a kitten. He is identified by his nom de guerre, Abu Huraira al-Amriki, “the American.”

A statement by Jabhat al-Nusra said the attack was one of four coordinated suicide bombings against government positions, in which two other foreign fighters and a Syrian participated.
