The terrorist fire is almost always indiscriminate and the fact that, again, there are no injuries and no significant damage (the explosion was in open fields) says nothing about the terror such attacks sow among civilians. That of course is the whole point - that is what terrorists do. There's no struggle for national liberation or self-determination. There's no righting of wrongs. There's no strategic recovery of lost territory. There's no army in their sights. It's all about terrifying the ordinary members of the society whom they hate.
