Palestinian security officer killed in blast in Gaza

Not good when a security officer is killed. They're the ones in charge of making sure that doesn't happen.

A senior Palestinian security officer was killed and two others were wounded in a car explosion in Gaza City on Wednesday, witnesses said. Nabil Hodhod, 38, commander of the Palestinian Preventive Security forces in Gaza City, was killed and two other security officers in his car were moderately wounded when the blast occurred while Hodhod was driving in Gaza City, said witnesses.

Preventive Security huh. Ironic.

Reports on the cause of his death conflicted as preventive security sources said that he was killed when a hand grenade accidentally exploded inside the car while other sources said that Hodhod might be shot dead by suspected Hamas militants.

Grenades are like cell phones. Don't use them while driving. Pull over to the side of the road, put on your hazards and then, when you're at a complete stop, it's safe to hurl the grenade at Hamas activists.
