Video Instruction for Making Sijjeel – An Improvised Hand-Thrown Charge against Vehicles and Personnel
By SITE Institute
October 17, 2005

A 15:22 minute video presentation of instructions to make ?Sijjeel,? an improvised explosive device (IED) to be thrown against vehicles and personnel, was recently posted to a password-protected al-Qaeda affiliated forum. The explosive ?Sijjeel? is described as being named after the deadly pieces of baked clay dropped by birds which struck the enemies of the Arabs and Muslims according to the Qur?an. The video contains a structured computer animation, providing visual instructions for the ingredients, composition, and ultimate use of the IED, which is depicted as being flung towards an armored vehicle and results in a blaze and release of shrapnel.

The video, a summary, and translation of the instructions are provided to our Intel Service members.
