Israel denies role in Hamas scientist's killing in Malaysia

Palestinian protesters set up tents at the Gaza Strip's border with Israel Thursday

Fadi Mohammed Al-Batsh, 35, was killed in a Kuala Lumpur drive-by shooting on Saturday, according to Malaysian authorities, with his family accusing Israel's Mossad spy agency of the assassination.

The academic's family had blamed the Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency, for orchestrating the assassination.

Israel's defence minister said the man was a rocket expert and "no saint", but dismissed suggestions Israel spies killed him.

Albatsh, who was married and a father of three was reported to be an electrical engineer and had lived in Kuala Lumpur for more than 10 years, was gunned down by two men on a motorbike who ambushed him and pumped more than 10 bullets into him, Xinhua news agency reported.

Israeli army gunfire killed a 15-year-old boy and two young men, aged 24 and 25, in northern Gaza, rescue workers said, and a 29-year-old Palestinian was shot dead in the south of the coastal enclave.

The local police chief in Malaysia stated that other people were at the scene, but that the killers focused exclusively on al-Batash, leading them to suspect it was a targeted assassination.

US Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt put out his own tweet: "A full investigation by Israel of Mohammed Ayoub's death is underway so that we will be able to understand what happened".

An autopsy is underway on the body of a Palestinian lecturer and Hamas member, who was assassinated in Malaysia in what is believed to be another Israeli act of foul play targeting the Palestinian resistance movement.

A member of Hamas's military wing was reportedly killed Sunday in a tunnel collapse near Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip. Al-Batsh was working on Hamas' next generation weaponry.

The IDF also underscored Hamas' relentless attempts to mobilize terrorism in Judea and Samaria from Gaza "while not taking into account the ramifications [on quality of life for] the Palestinian residents in the Judea and Samaria region".

Palestine will approach the UN Security Council to demand worldwide protection for Palestinians under Israeli occupation, a spokesman for President Mahmoud Abbas said on Friday, the Anadolu Agency reported. Hamas itself has also pointed fingers at Israel, promising "to hold meetings with the Malaysian officials and follow up closely the details of the crime".

But as I told The Real News on Friday, the coddling and rewards Israel receives, particularly from the United States and the European Union, means that Israeli leaders feel completely immune and are continuing to carry out these killings. The Mossad is believed to have assassinated Palestinian militants and scientists in the past, but rarely confirms such operations. He was a member of Hamas and supervised the group's drone program, Hamas has said.
