  • Palestinian lecturer's body 'to return to Gaza from Malaysia'

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.

A forensic examination found that the victim died of multiple injuries to his head and body.

"We can not confirm yet that the killers are European as claimed by some witnesses", he said.

Batsh's expertise in making weapons could have made him a target - militants in Hamas-ruled Gaza regularly fire rockets at southern Israel, usually without causing casualties.

He said they were not sure whether the men were still in Malaysia.

A spokesman for the Israeli government didn't comment on the killing, however on Sunday Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Israel Radio that Batsh was "no saint" and suggested that his killing was the result of "a settling of scores among terrorist organizations".

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".

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said with the latest development, police believe that the suspect could be still in the country and asked those with information about the identity of the suspect to contact investigating officer ASP Shahrizal Salleh at 017-7134705.

Malaysia has no diplomatic relations with Israel.

Maryam Abu Matar, from eastern Khan Yunis, for example, was described by Abu Sneima as "one of the most hard cases because the arteries are small", adding: "We made a link arterial by compensating a piece of vein from the other leg to pump blood". "But we will take an optimistic point of view and be confident that we will", Ahmad Zahid said. "They target Palestinians who have certain expertise so that they can quell the possibility of an intifada happening there before it can even begin".

Two armed Palestinians who crossed the border from Gaza into Israel on Tuesday were apprehended by IDF soldiers, the army said.

Hamas has previously accused the Mossad of assassinating another one of its drone experts - Mohamed Zouari - in Tunisia in 2016.

The two were spotted while trying to cross a security fence on Gaza border into Israel, military spokesman Avichay Adraei said in a statement.

Israel says that Malaysia has become fertile training and recruitment grounds for Hamas and other Palestinian militant factions over recent years, with many recruited at the International Islamic University in Kuala Lumpur.
