Palestinians: Assassinated Hamas Commander's Body To Be Returned To Gaza

Palestinians: Assassinated Hamas Commander's Body To Be Returned To Gaza

Palestine ambassador to Malaysia Datuk Dr Anwar Al Agha said the permission was obtained yesterday afternoon.

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

Fadi al-Batsh, an electrical engineering lecturer at a Malaysian university, was gunned down by two men on a motorcycle as he was on his way to a mosque early Saturday.

"We have yet to identify them, but we suspect that they used a fake identity either when entering the country or when they were here", he said said and noted they were believed to have entered the country some time in January.

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.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun confirmed the find but declined further comment as investigations were still ongoing.

When asked whether the suspects were Mossad intelligence agents, he said police had no information on that but did not rule out the possibility that they had military training.

The Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades is Hamas' military wing and armed members of the group dressed in camouflage attended the gathering, WSJ said. "Hamas has also aligned with Hezbollah terrorists and they are both involved in drug trafficking to support their activities", Diker said.

The sketches distributed to all police stations and border patrols nationwide showed bearded, light-skinned men of European or Middle Eastern heritage, investigators said.

Harun said that the motorbike allegedly used in the drive-by shooting was discovered Tuesday "in good condition".

The Mossad has been accused in the past of eliminating figures who supplied Palestinian and Lebanese terror groups with advanced technology, as well as of assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists.

Al Batsh, a father of three, had been in Malaysia for more than seven years and held a Malaysian permanent resident status, officials said.

Al-Batsh's body was released to his family on Wednesday and taken to a surau, or Islamic assembly building, where dozens of people mourned his death at a funeral ceremony.
