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.
