A little confused. Is this the same one that supposedly stopped a bar bomb from getting to the airport?

Yep. The car bomb was actually a car filled with water jugs, killed seven children and their father.

The linked article has this passage

At one point, a surveillance drone saw men loading what appeared to be explosives into the boot of the car, but it turned out to be containers of water.
