Jerusalem: Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman answered the criticism on Israel with his statement, ‘The Hamas engineer ‘Fadi Mohammad al-Batsh’ killed in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur was no saint’. ‘Fadi al-Batsh’ was killed in a shootout in the Malaysian capital on Saturday night. Palestinian terrorist organisation Hamas has claimed Fadi to be a member of their organisation and has blamed Israeli intelligence agency Mossad for the attack.
The Israeli Defence Minister gave a fitting reply to the Hamas allegations. “‘Fadi al-Batsh’ was no saint. He was not someone who was trying to improve the condition of electric supply or infrastructural facilities or water supply. We have reports of Hamas being responsible for him. Hamas has claimed that Fadi was involved in manufacturing rockets and in an effort to increasing their accuracy’, said Defence Minister Lieberman in support of his allegations about ‘Fadi al-Batsh’ being a terrorist.
“‘Fadi al-Batsh’ started from his home in Kuala Lumpur on a motorcycle on Saturday morning. Two unknown armed men sprayed bullets on him. Around 10 bullets were pumped into ‘Fadi al-Batsh’”, informed the Malaysian sources. The Malaysian police also said that the attackers were keeping a watch over ‘Fadi al-Batsh’ for around 20 minutes before the attack. The Malaysian police have claimed that ‘Fadi al-Batsh’ had connections with foreign intelligence agencies.
The Malaysian officers suspect that the two attackers, a European and a Caucasian, were also connected with some foreign intelligence agency. As per information, ‘Fadi al-Batsh’ was an electrical engineer and was a professor in a Malaysian college. Palestinian terrorist organisation Hamas has claimed that ‘Fadi al-Batsh’ was a member of their organisation and was martyred.
There have been incidences of Israel targeting the members linked with Hamas and other terrorist organisations as well as other terrorists on foreign land. In 2016, a Hamas operative recognised as a ‘Drone Expert’ was targeted in Tunisia.
