Police Deny Late Arrival Allegations At Fatal Shooting Scene Of Dr Fadi

Malaysian police said Wednesday that they believe the two men suspected of gunning down a Hamas-affiliated engineer in Kuala Lumpur are still in the country, as they released a new image of one of the suspects.

"[Israel] can not stand that there are Arab and Muslim minds that identify with the Arab-nationalist ideology, and that is why it took out scientists from Iran, from Tunisia and also Lebanese scientists", Nasrallah told supporters.

"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.

An image shows a suspect of killing of a Palestinian member of Hamas released by Royal Malaysia Police during a press conference at police headquarter in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, April 25, 2018.

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

Israel has for more than a decade imposed a crippling blockade on Gaza, fighting three wars with Islamist movement Hamas since 2008. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied involvement.

Israel has not commented. Police said security video showed that the suspects had waited for him for nearly 20 minutes.

Anwar al-Agha, the Palestinian envoy in Malaysia, said al-Batsh's body would be repatriated later Wednesday to the Gaza Strip for burial.

Suspects in Palestinian killing still in Malaysia, say cops
Hamas in an earlier statement said the Palestinian engineer was a "loyal" member and a "scientist of Palestine's youth scholars". Hamas initially stopped short of blaming Israel, saying only that al-Batsh had been "assassinated by the hand of treachery".

Israel has dismissed claims that the country's spy agency was behind Batash's killing, suggesting instead that his killing was a "settling of accounts" between sparring terrorist factions.

His brother Diaa told AFP they were preparing to transfer the body to Gaza for his funeral. But later its top leader accused Mossad of killing al-Batsh and threatened retaliation. Several noted, however, that Israel is routinely blamed for such assassinations even when it is not involved.

Mossad is believed to have assassinated Palestinian militants and scientists in the past, but rarely confirms such operations.

Israel's defence minister Avigdor Lieberman had appealed to Egypt to refuse the Palestinian request.
