Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly authorized the
assassination of senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Mabhouh early January
in Tel Aviv.
According to a report published by Times Online Netanyahu held a
meeting with Mossad chief Meir Dagan in early January inside the
briefing room of the headquarters of the spy agency where “some members
of a hit squad” were also present.
Citing Mossad sources, the report said “as the man who gives final
authorization for such operations, Netanyahu was briefed on plans to
kill Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.”
Sources said Mossad had received intelligence that the Hamas
commander was planning a Dubai trip and they started preparing for an
operation to assassinate him.
“The team had already rehearsed, using a hotel in Tel Aviv as a
training ground without alerting its owners,” according to the report.
Thanks to Dubai’s extensive system of CCTV cameras, the work of the
assassination team was revealed.
Dubai police released the identities of 11 people carrying European
passports, including six Britons, three Irish and two French and German,
who allegedly were Mossad agents carrying fake European documents.
Interpol has issued “red notices” for the 11 suspects to help find
and arrest them anywhere in its 188 member countries.
