Abstract:This dissertation focuses on the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP) of incidents involving suicide bombers worldwide. It is carried out from an incident driven perspective. The data set for this research was gathered from open sources including data from the Institute for the Study of Violent Groups (ISVG). The methodology is a longitudinal model examining the trends of suicide bombings from an operational point of view, as well as from their extent of lethality. The methodology focuses on open-source data over a six-year time period, from January 1, 2002 through December 31, 2007 encompassing a total of 1,621 observed suicide bombings which were carried out worldwide. Information drawn from these open sources includes geographical infatuation, tactical information, as well as information of targets, delivery method, and the total number of deaths. This study also explores the nature of suicide bombings, and the evolution of tactics used by terrorist groups. One of the most interesting tactical changes that merited closer observation is the use of female suicide bombers. The study found significant changes in lethality during the 2002 to 2007 time period. The LOWESS technique provides a visual representation of the changes over time. The effectiveness of suicide bombings was measured by lethality, with significant differences based on target type (soft targets, such as civilian targets v. hard targets, such as military targets), whether the target was foreign or domestic, and whether the suicide bombing was carried out indoors or outdoors. No significant differences in lethality were found based on the delivery method and gender of the perpetrator. A comparison between the two insurgencies in Afghanistan and Iraq were made, because over 70% of all observed suicide bombings have occurred there in the past 5 years. This required focusing on the differences in TTP, finding differences based on the delivery methods and targeting of suicide bombings. Keywords . Terrorism, Suicide Bombings, Lethality, Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTP), Female Suicide Bombers.
