Palestine - Mossad is hunting a gang of radicalised drug mules that strapped a bomb belt onto a three year-old donkey that blew up in the Rafah area of the Gaza Strip today.
Israeli bomb squad farces said they used a frozen lollipop to lure the beast to a safe detonation zone before carrying out a controlled explosion.
Bits of strawberry and pistachio ice cream still mark the blast site along with clumps of mangey grey fur.
And it's not the first time a beast of burden has been used in the Israel-Palestine conflict according to the Mossad website.
Last year a two-hump camel ('Bin') laden with water melons exploded outside the Ramallah High Street branch of payday lender Wonga following an outcry about Jewish interest rates.
Previously someone shoved a two pound incendiary device up PLO leader Yasser Arafat's champion shitzhu's backside during 'sensitive' talks with President Clinton.
Fortunately US secret service bloodhounds foiled the blast by feeding the pooch highly peppery guacamole causing the detonator to fail as the puppy got the runs.
Commenting on today's events a spokesperson for Animal Frights International blamed the children's game of Pin The Tail On The Donkey for poisoning terrorists' minds in this latest outrage.
