What Are Ninja Bombs? Pentagon's New Secret Missiles Kill Target With Blades

Drones used missiles with knife warhead to take out single terrorist targets

The secret R9X missile is created to destroy individual terrorist targets without injuring nearby civilians.

The weapon - nicknamed the "ninja" bomb - deploys knives in the shape of a halo and is created to target specific individuals while limiting civilian casualties in the surrounding area.

The missile, which is dubbed the R9X "Flying Ginsu", is a non-explosive missile which kills the enemy target with kinetic energy and six blades.

All modes of severe weather possible Wednesday in Green Country
Stitt on Wednesday amended an executive order he issued last week following a wave of severe weather that began on April 30. Counties on Tug Hill and in Western New York, where the heaviest rain is expected, could see minor flooding.


As well as cars, the weapon could also be used on buildings which could collapse and kill others if hit by an explosion.

Another victim was Jamal al-Badawi, the accused mastermind behind the deadly bombing in 2000 of the USS Cole.

Current US President Donald Trump has rescinded the Obama-era mandate to report civilian casualties by drone strike outside war zones. The terrorist, an Egyptian national, had been traveling in a Kia sedan that was surprisingly intact after the Central Intelligence Agency drone strike, given the fact that it had just been hit with a missile.

Trump said at the time, "Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety , and we couldn't do that". Defense Department spokesman said after the new tests: "We're aware of the reports and monitoring ".


Officials said the Department of Defense has only used the RX9 around six times, including in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Somalia.

The Journal was unable to discover any details about the R9X's development timeline, with the CIA, Pentagon and Hellfire missile maker Lockheed Martin all declining to comment.

Former US President Barack Obama ordered the development of a non-explosive missile after innocent civilians in Muslim countries were repeatedly dying via explosions by conventional US warheads.
