Israel threatens 'targeted killings' of Hamas leaders

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

An autopsy was being carried out Sunday on the body of a Palestinian professor who was gunned down in what his family claim was an assassination by Israel's Mossad spy agency.

Details of Palestinian Fadi al-Batsh killed in Malaysia shown on a slideshow during a press conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Sunday, April 22, 2018.

The 35-year-old Palestinian lecturer, who had been living in Malaysia with his wife and three children for 10 years, was shot dead in Setapak here by two assailants as he was on his way for subuh prayers at 6am on Satur-day. Israel says the violence is being orchestrated by Hamas, which it accuses of trying to carry out border attacks under the cover of large protests. "We have heard the announcements by the heads of the Hamas taking responsibility for the man, explaining he was involved with the production of rockets, with improving the rockets' accuracy", he is quoted as saying by Haaretz newspaper.

He called on the Malaysian authorities to act swiftly and find the culprits.

Hamas has acknowledged that al-Batsh was a member of the organization's terrorist wing. He said that there's a tradition at this point among terrorist organisations of blaming Israel for every settling of accounts.

"There are accusations only against the Israeli Mossad, and us, we accuse only the Israeli Mossad, and the Malaysian government should accelerate the investigation".

"No arrests have been made and the murder weapon has not been recovered".

The brutal slaying of Hamas member Dr Fadi Albatsh (pic) has grabbed global attention, especially in the Muslim world.

In addition to the drone downed previous year, Israel's army has said that it intercepted a drone off Gaza's coast in 2015.

Ahmad Majdalani, an executive member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) said the State Department was "attempting to abolish the depiction of occupation from these territories, which affirms USA complicity with the occupation". The Mossad is believed to have assassinated Palestinian militants and scientists in the past, but rarely confirms such operations.

His family has accused Mossad of being behind the killing.

During Friday's protests, four Palestinians were martyred by Israeli army gunfire. Soldiers responded with tear gas and live fire, killing four Gazans including a teenage boy, according to the Hamas run-health ministry.
