Beware the IEDs of March. Maybe the moonshine is flowing a little more freely now that spring is here, but Muslim terrorists are practicing poor workplace safety skills and scoring a record number of own goals.
The death toll for March is up to 15 Muslim terrorists dead and 10 wounded (not counting their own family members) in unintentional suicide bombings. (Though some of them were planning to eventually suicide bomb.)
Three Al Qaeda operatives accidentally blew themselves up while outfitting a car with explosives. A member of a Sinai based jihadist movement who led a deadly attack in Israel in 2011 died last week when a car accident he was involved in exploded a bomb that he was carrying.
An intending car bomber in Somalia, thought to be part of the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab jihadist organization, accidentally detonated his explosives prematurely. Four Palestinians were killed on Tuesday in a house explosion in the northern Gaza Strip town of Beit Hanoun.
The Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades division of Hamas mourned the untimely death in Rafah (Gaza) of one of its “field commanders”, Ibrahim al-Ghoul, and injuries to nine others as a result of a mishap during a training session on building bombs.
Aalim Deen Mehsud, a local commander of the Pakistani Taliban, blew himself up trying to cut open a mortar shell. In the Southern province of Helmand, four militants were killed and one was wounded when a roadside bomb they were attempting to plant along a main roadway went off prematurely.
So many explosions. And March isn’t even over yet.
