Palestinians die of wounds sustained in Gaza protests

Palestinians die of wounds sustained in Gaza protests

Some decades ago, the United Nations put forth a proposal that would create Palestine and Israel, the former for the area's Arabic camp, the latter for its Jewish camp.

The family of the Palestinian professor accused Israel's Mossad spy agency of killing him.

Avigdor Lieberman said it was likely that Batsh was killed as part of an internal Palestinian dispute.

Ismail Haniyeh told The Associated Press Saturday that based on previous assassinations "Mossad is not away from this disgraceful, bad crime".

Al Batsh's uncle Jamal al-Batsh, speaking to Reuters in the Jabalya town in northern Gaza Strip, said he believed the killing was the work of Israel's Mossad espionage service.

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.

He replied: "We heard about this on the news".

"We believe the lecturer was their target because two other individuals walked by the place earlier unharmed".

Besides his Hamas affiliation, al-Batsh was also a cousin of Khaled al-Batsh, a senior official in the Islamic Jihad militant group, who accused Mossad of the assassination, without providing evidence. "The terrorist organisations blame every assassination on Israel - we're used to that", Lieberman told Israel Radio. "The man was no saint and he didn't deal with improving infrastructure in Gaza - he was involved in improving rockets' accuracy.", he claimed.

The police said the investigation is ongoing.

Mohammad Shedad, 17, a student and a relative of the victim, also blamed Mossad for the killing.

"Since news of his killing broke, all sorts of sensational news regarding Fadi has come out, including allegations in foreign media that he was an expert in making rockets and drones. So [Israel] think he is unsafe".

"We don't deny the possibility that his achievements and his capabilities had perhaps made him a target for Israeli Zionists". He had lived in Malaysia for the past 10 years.

More than 100 members of the 700-seat Palestinian National Council (PNC) want to delay a rare session of the Palestinians' top decision-making body, saying on Sunday they were concerned some factions would be shut out.

He said that Israeli actions pose a threat not only to the Palestinian people, but also to global law, which Israel "violates every day".

His death brought to 35 the number of Palestinians killed since border clashes intensified on March 30 in an ongoing protest known as "The Great March of Return" - evoking a longtime call for refugees to regain ancestral homes in what is now Israel.
