A senior Taliban militant’s lesson on how to manufacture and handle suicide vests was cut short due to some of his own mishandling.
Seven Taliban recruits were killed and two were seriously injured after a suicide bomb vest exploded during an apparent training class in a madrassa, or Islamic religious school, in Afghanistan.
Apparently before the senior leader could get to the “handle with care” portion of his lesson, the vest exploded, according to the U.K. Daily Mail. The explosion rocked the village of in Mastofi in the Andar District on Wednesday night.
According to the Afghan news agency Khaama Press, the senior leader killed at the scene was named Farouq. Apparently, Farouq wasn’t as skilled in the delicate nature of handling suicide vests as he believed he was. Or maybe he’d had a few too many shots of camel urine.
The world may never know, as Ahmad Fahim Amiree, a spokesman for the police headquarters in central Ghanzi, confirmed Farouq and seven of his terrorist students were killed in the explosion. There wasn’t much left after the “lesson.”
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened.
Islamic State group terrorists have accidentally blown themselves up before, and terrorist recruits have mishandled dangerous weapons leading to very bad situations — for them.
Inexperienced terrorists playing around with explosives and bombs hardly ever ends well for the terrorist. Earlier this year, individuals praying at a mosque foiled one suicide bomber’s plans by disarming him before he could act.
Clearly, some of these guys aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed and, left to their own devices, might just wipe each other off the map.
Here’s an example of what a terrorist’s plan going wrong can look like:
As long as these barbarians continue to unleash their terror on the world, we’re not complaining about the jihadi justice they inflict upon themselves and so rightly deserve.
