To the best of our knowledge, no attempt has ever been made to develop latent fingerprints from the glass surfaces of unignited incendiary bottles. It has always been assumed that the accelerants used in the bottles would wash away latent prints. That precept was challenged at the Division of Identification and Forensic Science of the Israel National Police, and, using the Small Particle Reagent (SPR) method, latent fingerprints were recovered from glass surfaces washed by accelerant fluids with a 65% success rate.
