While the deminer was working in recovering one of the SMLs in Al Akaider 2 laid with 15 AP mines (M14) and after recovering 9 mines from the same SML and locating a signal in the predicted site for the 10th mine, the signal was strong and continuous which confused the deminer and there is no way to pin point an M14 mine at that area, the deminer start excavating the area from a depth for 40 cm using the heavy RAKE , the soil at that area hard that the deminer was using the RAKE in a hacking motion which caused a pressure on the mine pressure plate and initiate the mine about 2.2 m away from the deminer (the length of the RAKE handle).
