Guide for Modifying a Cellular Phone for Use as a Remote Explosive Detonator
By SITE Institute
February 2, 2006

A detailed guide for making detonators using mobile phones was made available on a password-protected al-Qaeda-affiliated forum. The guide, seemingly intended for a technologically sophisticated audience, suggests optimal circuits for a universal mobile phone remote detonator triggered by pressing the ?seven? key. A member responding to the manual?s posting claims that during battles in Palestine, the mobile circuits do not work, and additionally, reminds readers to account for the additional expense of buying air time for the cell phone detonator to work.

A translation of the guide and reply postings are provided to our Intel Service members.
