Israel says 15 Hamas operatives arrested in West Bank raid

Israel says 15 Hamas operatives arrested in West Bank raid

It also may not have been the first time Israel carried out such an attack outside its territory, with analysts pointing to the killing of a Hamas-affiliated scientist Muhammad al-Zawari in Tunisia in 2016.

On Saturday, Hamas-linked Palestinian lecturer Fadi Mohammed al-Batsh was shot dead near his home in the Malaysian capital by two gunmen, who fled the scene unscathed.

Tension has been high along border between Gaza and Israel amid Palestinian rallies demanding the return of refugees to their towns and villages in historical Palestine from which they were driven in 1948 to make way for the new state of Israel.

The sketches distributed to all police stations and border patrols nationwide showed bearded, light-skinned men of European or Middle Eastern heritage, investigators said.

Fadi Mohammad al-Batsh, 35, was killed in a hail of bullets by two attackers Saturday as he walked to a mosque for dawn prayers.

Police have said al-Batsh had lived in Malaysia for more than seven years and was a permanent resident of the country.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said with the latest development, police believe the suspect could be still in the country and asked those with information about the identity of the suspect to contact investigating officer ASP Shahrizal Salleh at 017-7134705.

Saudi-led strikes kill 20 at wedding party in Yemen
The coalition said another missile crashed in a Saudi desert on Sunday, without specifying a location, adding it caused no damage. The Saudi-led coalition's spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the incident.

Palestine ambassador to Malaysia Datuk Dr Anwar Al Agha said the permission was obtained yesterday afternoon.

"Upon arriving in Egypt, the remains will be brought directly to Gaza, which is expected to take about five hours", he said.

Al Batsh was a lecturer at Universiti Kuala Lumpur, specialising in power engineering, according to the university.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said it was likely that he was killed as part of an internal Palestinian dispute.

Malaysia, a Muslim-majority nation of 32 million people, has no formal diplomatic relations with Israel.

The series has included weekly clashes with IDF troops along the security fence, with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) planted at various points along the fence aimed at killing Israeli soldiers on IDF patrols, explosive firebomb kites aimed at setting agricultural fields ablaze inside Israel, and multiple border infiltration attempts.
