Suspects in killing of Hamas engineer still in Malaysia, police say

Fadi Mohammad al-Batsh, 35, was killed in a hail of bullets by two attackers Saturday as he walked to a mosque for dawn prayers. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied involvement.

Earlier on Sunday, police released the photofit of both suspects describing the duo as 180cm tall, having fair complexions, and one of them possessing a long beard.

"One of them has quite prominent facial features and ..."

Malaysia's police chief Mohamad Fuzi Harun said a task force has been formed to investigate the killing but would not speculate on the motive or whether foreign assassins were involved. He urged anyone who might have information to come forward, but acknowledged police were not sure if the gunmen were still in the country.

The bodies of the two soldiers - Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul - are now being held by Hamas, along with two Israeli civilians, Avera Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed, who entered Gaza of their own volition in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

"He filled most of his time with learning new things", said Mr Ramy, who also lives in Malaysia.

Malaysian Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was quoted by the state-run Bernama news agency as saying Batash was "an electrical engineer and an expert at making rockets".

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman reportedly said the request was in line with Israel's policy on preventing the transfer of the bodies of martyrs from the Hamas movement for burial in the Gaza Strip.

Dan Diker from the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs told WIN that Hamas has indeed become an global terrorist organization.

Israel's Mossad has been accused of several high-profile killings involving Palestinians around the world, although Israel has consistently denied the accusations.

Some 500 people attended the funeral service of slain Palestinian lecturer Fadi Mohammed al-Batsh this afternoon.

The spy agency was accused of executing the murder of Hamas military commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in his hotel room in Dubai in 2010.

"This crime, I believe, is another reflection of the nature of the Israeli occupation", he said. "Never a rocket scientist or drone expert", Hafidzi, who worked with Al Batsh, told BenarNews on Saturday.
