Malaysian police say an investigation is underway into the gunning down of a Palestinian man and that security is being beefed up in the country following recent high-profile assassinations.

Police markers indicated 14 bullets had been sprayed at the victim, some of them hitting a wall.

The autopsy was being carried out on Sunday.

In another seemingly trans-national terror operation, new facts were emerging in the incident of dramatic killing of a Palestinian scientist Fadi al-Batsh in Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur on Saturday. I have to investigate very carefully and deeply.

On Saturday, Ismail Haniyeh, the former Prime Minister of Palestine told that based on previous assassinations "Mossad is not away from this disgraceful, awful crime". "We will view the recordings of all the CCTV in the area", he said.

Batsh's uncle Jamal al-Batsh, said he believed Mossad was behind the killing because "Israel knows Palestine will be liberated by scientists".

Datuk Seri Mazlan said that footage from closed-circuit television cameras near the scene of the shooting showed that the two assailants waited for around 20 minutes in the area before attacking. Al-Batsh leaves behind a wife and three young children.

However, its top leader later accused the Mossad of killing him and threatened retaliation.

Last March, Tel Aviv assassinated Mazen Fuqaha, one of the group's senior figures, in Gaza City.

Ahmad Zahid said a preliminary investigation showed that the lecturer was planning to leave for Turkey this afternoon to attend an worldwide conference.

The killing and the circumstances surrounding it also raised suspicions of complicity by Emirati intelligence and other services in the assassination.

Palestine's ambassador to Malaysia Anwar Al Agha later identified the victim as Palestinian Fadi al-Batsh, but declined to say if he was a member of Hamas.

It told WAFA that it has demanded from the Malaysian authorities to begin urgent investigation into the killing of its son in order to catch the culprits before they leave the country, adding that Batsh was supposed to travel to Turkey on Sunday to chair an global scientific conference on energy. "The terrorist organizations blame every assassination on Israel - we're used to that", Lieberman told Israel Radio. "We constantly see a settling of accounts between various factions in the terrorist organisations and I suppose that is what happened in this case".
