Assassination of Hamas 'rocket man' exposes spread of terror group

Assassination of Hamas 'rocket man' exposes spread of terror group

Mossad is also believed to have been behind the assassination in 2010 of top Hamas commander Mahmud al-Mabhuh in a Dubai hotel.

On Saturday, two men on a motorcycle fired 10 shots at engineering lecturer and Hamas rocket expert Batsh in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, killing him on the spot.

The raid comes after Hamas accused Israel of assassinating one of its men in Malaysia and amid a wave of mass protests along the Gaza border that have turned violent.

National police chief Mohamad Fuzi Harun said that the motorbike allegedly used by the assailants had been found in the Setapak area of Kuala Lumpur.

They show two light-skinned suspects who may be European or Middle Eastern, the police chief said, according to a recording of his comments heard by Reuters.

Police said closed-circuit television footage showed the suspects had waited for him for nearly 20 minutes.

The coffin of Palestinian Fadi al-Batsh is carried inside a mosque for a prayer in Selayang, on the outskirt of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Wednesday, April 25, 2018.

The case has drawn attention to the possible involvement of Israel's intelligence agency, Mossad.

He was named co-MVP along with Jones. "We had the first offense playing against the first defense", Saban said. But since this might not be decided until September, it's impossible to predict what might happen.

The suspects were believed to have entered Malaysia sometime in late January, but it was not known what nationalities they were or where they had travelled from, said Mohamad Fuzi.

The Hamas movement has vowed revenge for al-Batsh's death.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman dismissed claims of Mossad's role in the murder and said it was likely that Mr Batsh was killed as part of an internal Palestinian dispute.

Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi earlier said: "the government was always monitoring foreign agents, but this was sometimes made hard when they use passports which have diplomatic relations with Malaysia".

Mr Batsh's family has asked for his body to be buried in Gaza.

Al-Batsh, an electrical engineering lecturer at a Malaysian university, was believed to have been working on Hamas' unmanned aerial vehicle program and was working on improving the accuracy of its rockets.

Malaysia has no diplomatic relations with Israel.

Malaysian officials have in recent years denied allegations by Israeli security services that Hamas operatives were training on Malaysian soil to carry out military operations against Israel.
