LOL. What was that?:)
Looks like a regular IED. Also, seem implausible that a multi-million dollar fighter/attack airplane is dropping IEDs from the air when they could just as easily drop normal ordinance.
I say it’s an IED that went off early.

Maybe, after it's all said and done, sometime in the future, sheep will graze there as well as around the former site of Damascus.

Old tactic even depicted in a WWII flick staring Gary Cooper I believe it was “China Road” where he atop a hill rolled down a drum of gas down a hill setting it to go off in a Chinese village of straw houses run by a Chinese War Lord. They had just murdered his men attempting to supply Chang Kai’s Check’s army.

Sounds similar to Fu Gas from the Vietnam conflict that we dropped on the VC.

I didn’t hear any helicopters prior to detonation.
