Mourners at sendoff for Hamas rocket expert's body call for revenge

Mourners at sendoff for Hamas rocket expert's body call for revenge

Malaysian police released on Monday computer-generated images of two men suspected of killing al-Batsh outside his complex the capital.

The case has drawn attention to the possible involvement of Israel's intelligence agency, Mossad.

On Saturday, Palestinian lecturer Fadi al-Batsh, 35, was gunned down as he was walking to a mosque near his home to lead dawn prayers.

"Right now, we believe they are still in the country and hope that anyone, who has information on these two to alert the police", he said. Israel has denied the claims.

"This crime, I believe, is another reflection of the nature of the Israeli occupation", he said.

According to the local police chief, the suspects had fair complexions, and were either of Middle Eastern or European descent.

The Islamic militant group Hamas controls the Gaza Strip and has organized the protests.

The pictures show two light-skinned, bearded men, one of whom was wearing glasses and a white and black helmet.

The killing was done in a "very professional" manner and police are working on the angle that the assailants may be foreign agents, Fuzi said.

The Hamas movement has vowed revenge for al-Batsh's death. His younger brother, Rami Albatsh, who arrived from Germany on Sunday evening, was also there to facilitate the process of flying his body back to Gaza through Egypt this evening.

Hamas initially stopped short of blaming Israel, saying only that al-Batsh had been "assassinated by the hand of treachery".

A Palestinian journalist, shot by Israeli forces while covering a protest along the Gaza-Israel border almost two weeks ago, died of his wounds on Wednesday, Palestinian health officials said.

Israel has a long history of being accused of targeting wanted Palestinian militants in daring overseas operations and has been linked to other assassinations as well, though it has rarely publicly acknowledged them.
