A 27-year-old Arab Terrorist from the Saraya al-Quds cell, a branch of Islamic Jihad, was killed in an accidental explosion in the northern Gaza Strip, said Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Hamas-run Health Ministry said on Saturday. Islamic Jihad said the terrorist, who was identified as Ibrahim Frahat, died while preparing for battle, making no mention of an accidental explosion. During the explosion, two other Arabs from Gaza were injured.
Major General Yoav Mordechai, the head of the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), said that Frahat died while manufacturing weapons and ammunition for Islamic Jihad in a house in the Sheikh Zayed neighborhood in Beit Lahiya.
It is no surprise that a person who plays with fire ultimately harms himself, Mordechai wrote in a Facebook post.
In January, 22-year-old Hamas activist Mohammad Fathi Janid was also killed in what the terror group referred to as an accidental explosion in the northern Gaza Strip, the Jerusalem Post reported. Last year, 22 members of Hamass armed wing were killed while preparing equipment, the majority in a string of tunnel collapses, Hamas said.
The latest high-profile accidental suicide from a sworn enemy of Israel was that of Imad al-Alami, also known as Abu Hamam, who accidentally shot himself in January. Al-Alami was one of the founders of Hamas and served as a former member of Hamass political bureau. Although unconfirmed, some theorize that he may have committed suicide and due to the embarrassment which would have been caused by the news of such an act by a founding member, the terrorist organization framed it as an accidental suicide.
I’m sure some of these “work accidents” are cover stories for covert ops or snipers taking them out, no?
The sad news in all of this is that his compatriots were only injured in the explosion.
Well, maybe fifth or sixth.
Hang on; lemme channel some CNN for ya....
That’s why I’ve always told my nephews since they were kids don’t strap yourself with explosives for a suicide bombing. Go to college instead.
WITHOUT AN ACCIDENT
I love waking up to good news.
Man, their training program really sux !
I KILL YO...................................
I am surprised that Israel has not developed a defensive weapon that causes all switchable electronics to be circuit tested in close proximity such as walking through a security portal. Of course, the US would resist intentionally detonating the bomb vest people but it is existential to Israel.
Seems like a simple task.
A group of terrorists had built a bomb and set the timer to detonate the next day. But they were reminded that they needed to turn their clocks back one hour, which they did for every clock in the house. They just forgot to change the one on the bomb. They loaded up the bomb, got on the road and BOOM!
It's good to know this sort of thing is a recurring event.
Love it. Israel playing around with their EMP toys again?
He got what he wanted so it works for me.
How do you know they haven’t?
Because people are not blowing themselves up with the frequency that would occur.
