An Australian man is suspected of carrying out a suicide bombing attack in Syria on behalf of the proscribed terror group the al-Nusrah Front.
Photos of the suspected bomber with his face blurred out have been circulating on social media websites as community members in Australia attempted to verify his identity.
Some sites were reporting that the man was from Queensland and had travelled to Syria with his wife before sending her back to Australia just a short time ago.
The man, referred to by multiple jihadist social media accounts as "Abu Asma al-Australi", died following a car-bomb attack on a school where troops had been stationed in the city of Deir al-Zor, the sixth largest in the war torn country.

A spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said the Australian Government was aware of reports that an Australian had killed himself in a suicide bombing in eastern Syria, but could not confirm any of the speculation.
He said the government is seriously concerned that Australians are fighting in Syria, including some with al- Qaeda linked al-Nusrah.
"This is being handled as a security and intelligence matter. It is the long-standing practice of Australian Governments not to comment on security and intelligence matters," he said.
Video footage purported to be of the aftermath of the incident, and viewed by Fairfax Media, shows a large cloud of smoke seen to rise high up in the air, visible kilometers away.
Up to 200 Australians have reportedly joined the fighting in Syria, with ASIO chief David Irvine earlier this year confirming domestic intelligence agency is attempting to monitor their movements.
The timing of the attack is still unknown however the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bombing had sparked fighting in the city that was still ongoing.
"Regular forces are still clashing with al-Nusra Front and several rebel factions in the perimeter of the Deir Izzor military airport, after a suicide bomber from al-Nusra called "Abu Asma' al-Australi" blew up himself in a detonated car in the school in al-Mre'iya town in which regular forces are centralized, it lies near the Deir Izzor military airport," the groups website states.
Other online posts made by Islamic news accounts include: "@AlNusrawi: The martyr who carried out a martyrdom operation in Deir al Zor is Abu Asma' al Ustrali."
Al-Nusrah announced its presence in Syria via a video statement in January 2012.
The al-Qaeda linked Syrian terrorist group was listed a terrorist organisaiton by the federal government in March.
It's stated objectives are to remove President Bashar al-Assad and create a salafist-oriented Sunni Islamist state in Syria.
Al-Nusrah believes its actions, which included multiple vehicle suicide bombings in Damascus that killed up to 100 people in February, are supported by religious texts.

honestly, the government needs to stop being such a giant pussy and state that anyone who travels to syria will have their citizenship revoked. these people (the ones that survive) will come back to Australia, filled to the teeth with an extremist ideology and become a burden to this nation.

religion of peace etc etc yeh, that's comical at this point.

well, yes, that goes without saying. however, how many people that are pissed off at their political situations at home travel back to said home and blow themselves up in an attempt to kill innocent civilians? that seems to be an all exclusive trait of the middle east.

Citizenship can only be revoked if you take up arms AGAINST Australia. I doubt the minister for DFAT will just revoke someone's citizenship because they traveled into Syria, probably did it illegally too, who the fuck is going to show up at customs and go hey guys im just here to fight your gov.

They're jihadists garygaz, those fuckers get involved in EVERY single conflict in the Middle East, they have no respect for national borders because they want to establish a caliphate. Whatever, bitch blew himself up nothing you can do about it now.

GL getting access to explosive material in sydney or purchasing a large quantity of explosive fertilizers without a target on your back. Much easier to drive a car down with IED's and blow shit up instead of having home made explosives.

I don't think Australia is as safe as we, perhaps naively assume.

The biggest threat to Australian national security/interests is not at home but overseas @ consulates and hotels. Biggest attack against Australians is the bali bombings + marriot hotel bombing in SE asia.

thankfully the indonesians are as much if not more onboard than we are on fighting terrorism... those guys at densus 88 dont fuck around

Revoke the citizenship of all muslims, their loyalty only lies with their barbaric religion not Australia. Muslims would gladly blow themselves up anywhere in Australia if it means that they secure a place in heaven.

Yep, nothing to do with the work of the intelligence community or the fact that it's almost impossible to carry out any large scale attack in Australia. GL getting any explosive material bro without ASIO knocking on your door.

Australia has also been lucky though. If Islamic terrorists wanted to hurt Australia then eventually they probably would if they tried enough.

I think they wouldn't be successful ... With the level of security at the Australian border.
