Liberman rejects claim that Mossad behind killing of Hamas rocket engineer in Malaysia

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman rejects Hamas claims that the Mossad was behind the death of a Palestinian electrical engineer, which the Gaza-based terror group asserted was one of its key members.

“We heard about it in the news. The terrorist organizations blame every assassination on Israel.  We’re used to that,” Liberman tells Israel Radio.

“The man was no saint and he didn’t deal with improving infrastructure in Gaza. He was involved in improving rocket precision,” the defense minister continues.

“We are constantly seeing a settling of accounts between various factions in the terrorist organizations and I suppose that is what happened here,” he adds.

Fadi Mohammad al-Batsh, 35, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, according to Malaysian authorities.
