Palestinian scholar killed in Kuala Lumpur, family blames Mossad

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

When contacted later by Reuters, Lazim declined to comment on reports that the victim was a member of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas or had been targeted by hitmen.

Hamas stopped wanting blaming Israel, saying exclusively that he had been "assassinated by the hand of treachery".

Kuala Lumpur: The family of a Palestinian professor and Hamas member accused Israel's Mossad spy agency on Saturday of killing him on the streets of Kuala Lumpur.

Palestinian sources in Malaysia quoted the police chief as saying that two unidentified motorcyclists committed the murder and shot more than 10 bullets at Batash.

Al Batsh's uncle Jamal al-Batsh, speaking to Reuters in the Jabalya town in northern Gaza Strip, said he believed the killing was the work of Israel's Mossad espionage service. "In fact, the previous killing of a Korean citizen (Kim Jong-nam at klia2 in Sepang on Feb 13 last year) shows that there is an attempt to turn Malaysia into a place to launch operations by criminal syndicates", he said in a statement.

'Get Ready Russia': Trump Warns Of Directing Smart Missiles Toward Syria
On Twitter , Trump called the Syrian President a " Gas Killing Animal " and warned that U.S. missiles " will be coming ". It is also set to carry out a fact-finding mission in Douma, though it has so far declined to provide a timetable.

In an interview on the television network Al-Miyadin, Khaled al-Batash demanded that Malaysia "conduct a comprehensive and rapid investigation to prevent the escape of the assassins".

However, Israeli media reported that he was also deeply involved in the Hamas drone development project.

Palestinian websites identified al-Batsh as a relative of a senior official in the Gaza branch of the Islamic Jihad group. It says it also aims to assert the right of refugees to return to their former homes in Israel.

Family members accused the Mossad of carrying out the attack on the Hamas engineer. The date is mourned by Palestinians as their "nakba", or catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands were uprooted in the 1948 Mideast war over Israel's creation.
