Nablus: Bomb explodes prematurely in Hamas car
JPost - Reg Req’d Darwin’s law among the less-than-trained
One Hamas terrorists was killed and at least two other Palestinians were in a critical condition Wednesday night when a bomb they were carrying in their vehicle exploded in the northern West Bank town of Nablus, Palestinian security sources and witnesses said.
The three Palestinians were driving in a car in the eastern part of the city when the explosion took place shortly after 10pm local time.

The car was totally destroyed.

Palestinians named the Hamas terrorist killed as Raad Saad.
And I’m Real Saaaad too
Media reports said the men were traveling with at least one weapon and several small explosive devices, saying it was possible that one of the bombs had accidentally detonated.

The IDF said it was aware of the blast, but stressed the army was not involved in the incident.

#5  Messing with armed explosives, especially with homemade triggering systems is REAL touchy. More of these work accidents indicates that Hamas is having trouble getting the good components and competent help is getting scarce. SDUs. Self-Destructive Units. All right.

#4  It doesn't get any better than this. Scratch two terrorists.

That's two more we don't have to remove forcibly later on.

#3  Potholes will ruin your day when you're a bomber. They have drugs for that premature stuff.

Here's hoping for a kink in the IV tube of the morons who survived.
