Days of Palestine – Gaza
The Ministry of Interior and National Security in Gaza Sunday announced the arrest of one of those involved in the assassination of Palestinian engineer Fadi al-Batsh in Malaysia in 2018.
The Ministry’s spokesman, Iyad Al-Bazm, said that within the framework of the security services’ follow-up to the assassination of the martyr Fadi Al-Batsh in Malaysia on April 21, 2018, and through the ongoing investigations with the Internal Security, the confessions of one of the detainees indicate his involvement, and on the authority of the Israeli Mossad, to participate in the assassination of the martyr Al-Batsh.
Al-Buzum added that investigations into the case are being completed.
The Palestinian scientist, engineer Fadi Muhammad Al-Batsh, was assassinated by the “Israeli” Mossad in Malaysia in April 2018, after someone shot him while he was going to perform the dawn prayer in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, with gunmen on a bicycle that penetrated his body and head.
Fadi al-Batsh was born in 1983 in the city of Jabalia in the Gaza Strip. He obtained his bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering from the Islamic University of Gaza in late 2009.
Al-Batsh owns a patent for increasing the efficiency of electric power networks. He also invented a device for improving the transmission of electrical energy and is considered one of the first initiators of the establishment of the International Assembly of Palestinian Engineers in Malaysia.
For its part, the al-Batsh family issued a statement confirming what was circulated through social media and said that it now knows the name of the killer, holding the Israeli occupation fully responsible for the assassination of their son.
