SITE Publications
Jihadist Forum Member Provides Instructions for Several Explosives
By SITE Institute
August 9, 2005

An explosives manual was recently posted to a password-protected al-Qaeda affiliated message board, providing detailed instructions to build Molotov cocktails, burning bottles, pipe bombs, fruit bombs, mines, and ?explosive sand.? Explosive sand is explained to be a ?sea sand,? that in Jordan, is known as: ?Raml Sweiler.? For each explosive, the author lists the ingredients, step-by-step processes for preparation, and suggestions for their use. For example, concerning mines, the author states that a mine should be placed in the dirt with little exposure, so that ?when a jeep or person pauses and presses the spring, it goes down and it presses the matches in the black striking paper.?

A full translation of the manual is provided to our Intel Service members.
