WATCH Dramatic moment ISIS suicide car is BLOWN UP as it hurtles towards Syrian rebels


The terrifying clip shows a car bomb hurtling towards a US-backed rebel stronghold before a direct hit from a missile sees it explode into a large fireball.

Kurdish fighters – at the forefront of the fightback against the depraved terror group – were behind the blast in north-east Syria.

They are among a number of rebel groups pursuing “mopping up” operations outside the town of Al-Shadadi, according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Observatory boss Rami Abdel Rahman said British and American air strikes had helped win back the town from ISIS – also known as Daesh.

The group”s twisted jihadis have since embarked on a counter-offensive, employing improvised weapons such as the thwarted car bomb.

Defence experts have speculated that the weapon used to destroy the vehicle was an American anti-tank missile.

Many named the explosive as a portable FGM-148 Javelin, a favourite of the US army.

The incident is the latest in a string of humiliating defeats for ISIS – which is apparently “beginning to crack” under the pressure of coalition airstrikes.

Repeated attacks have hit the death cult”s recruitment and finances, and defence chiefs have warned that the leaders of the so-called caliphate are likely to lash out and carry out a Paris-style atrocity on British soil.
