Hamas bomb experts, like all terrorists, are a lot better at detonating bombs than they are at not detonating them.
Take Muqata’s revelation about the Hamas bomb expert who blew up an AP reporter and the rest of his Hamas bomb disposal unit, and his unique expertise in bomb disposal techniques.
In the failed rocket disarming attempt on a dud Israeli shell, we reported that Hazem Abu Murad, the head of the Hamas bomb disposal unit and 4 of its members, along with an Italian AP journalist Simone Camilli were killed by the blast and 6 others were seriously wounded.
The bomb squad’s professionalism is questionable, certainly their technique was unique.
“An anxious crowd watched on Thursday as Hazem Abu Murad and his team stood over a unexploded one-tonne Israeli bomb in a field of tomato and potato plants.
“It’s already been disabled! Don’t worry – it won’t explode!” he shouted, jumping up and down on the bomb.”
This wasn’t the shell that killed everyone, but you get the idea that Hazem did better with bombs that were disabled or that had no explosives or that were made out of chocolate.
But when you’re a terrorist, you don’t have to think about bomb disposal.
