Israel denies killing Palestinian lecturer in Malaysia's capital

Israel’s defence minister Avigdor Lieberman dismissed claims that Israel’s Mossad spy agency was responsible for the killing of a Palestinian lecturer in Malaysia.

Mr Lieberman suggested that the Palestinian lecturer Fadi al-Batsh was killed in an internal dispute, adding,

“This man was no saint and he didn’t deal with improving infrastructure in Gaza – he was involved in improving rockets accuracy. We constantly see a settling of accounts between various factions in the terrorist organisations and I suppose that is what happened in this case.”

Malaysia’s deputy prime minister Amhad Zahid Hamidi, said the suspects were believed to be Europeans with links to a foreign intelligence agency, reports eyewitness news.

Batch was a lecturer at University Kuala Lumpur and specialise in power engineering.
