The explosion early Monday wrecked the house of Ala Adnaf, a commander of the Hamas military wing, Palestinian security officials said. At least 17 people were rushed to a hospital, and unconfirmed reports said two people were killed. Rescue teams were digging through the rubble.

The security officials said a missile fired by an Israeli warplane hit the house. The Israeli military said there was no airstrike or any other Israeli activity in the area. The spoke on customary condition of anonymity.

Whether it was a work-related accident or airstrike, the news is good.

They probably mixed the wrong common household chemicals together while cleaning rugs or something. A tragic mistake.

These things happen occasionally. The Weathermen got educated about a generation ago.

Obviously he was a bombmaker, just not a very good one. ;')

Sounds like a work accident to me. Couldn’t have happened to a more suitable guy.

Who knew that a brief, high power, swept VHF radio pulse could set off primers? There should be warning labels.

They simply must put a limit on the size of the firecrackers they detonate during festivities.

But seriously, the AP never gets their facts straight, accidentally on purpose. Israel allows MORE consumer goods into Aza, and to hear Heller they’re first STARTING to let consumer goods in.

Oh, crap. They’re going to start direct talks. And things have been so quiet lately. If we make any major concessions, stand by for another war.

I grew up in a neighborhood in Boston that had a large number of Immagrants from this part of the world.

Houses blew up frequently.

They always blamed it on the Gas Company.

We knew better.
Someone used to call our Junior High every FRIDAY and tell us there was a Bomb in our school. So the whole school would have to evacuate, The Bomb Squad would show up with their special truck, and they would search the school.

On THREE occasions, They actually Found Something. Once a Police Officer was killed, One was blinded and lost both hands. This was in the middle sixties.

Interesting that it was always on a Friday.

This brought back memories.

Too bad it didn’t level ALL of Gaza and wipe out every last one of those savages.
