Hoisted by their own petard....

This isn't the first time this sort of thing has happened.
A pickup truck carrying masked terrorists blew up at a Hamas rally at the Jebaliya refugee camp in the
Gaza Strip on Friday. At least least 19 Palestinians were killed and 85 injured, hospital doctors said.

Hamas claimed that Israeli aircraft flew overhead during the rally and fired on demonstrators.

Due to the increased allegations accusing of Israel of involvement in the incident, the IDF issued a statement:

"The IDF is not involved in any way in the explosion that occurred this evening in Jebaliya. All attempts to accuse [the IDF] or implicate the army's involvement by certain elements are baseless and unfounded. The IDF views seriously attempts to use the incident as an excuse to attack Israel."

Channel Two reported that while conflicting reports were received, the truck appeared to have been carrying a number of missiles, one of which exploded due to mishanding.
Let's hope the Palestinians don't use this as excuse for more violence.
