Snipers Overlook Crowd of Protesters Near Israel-Gaza Border (File)

Gaza Protesters Implement Kite Bombs Decorated in Swastikas in Attack on Israeli Border

However, he did not respond directly when asked if Israel was behind the killing.

The academic's family had blamed the Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency, for orchestrating the assassination. He alleged that it was likely that the victim had been killed as part of an internal Palestinian dispute.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said Mossad had been behind past attempts to kill Palestinian scientists, and the attack on Batash "follows this sequence".

"There are accusations only against the Israeli Mossad and the Malaysian government should accelerate the investigation", al-Batsh's father, Mohamed said.

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Malaysia's deputy prime minister, said the suspects were believed to be Europeans with links to a foreign intelligence agency, according to state news agency Bernama.

Fadi al-Batsh, a 35-year-old scientist, was allegedly helping Hamas, which controls the Gaza strip, to develop rockets to fire at Israel.

"We heard about this [killing] on the news", Lieberman told Israel's Kan Reshet Bet radio.

Al-Batsh had a doctorate in electrical engineering, but in recent years he worked in the electro-optics field, and had been working on improving Hamas's rockets.

Al-Maliki told Voice of Palestine radio on Sunday morning that Friedman's attempts to bring down the term occupied territories indicates that the U.S. has completely lost its credibility, and showing full bias to the occupation and settlements.

Fadi al-Batsh was targeted by at least 10 shots fired at him by two bike-riding gunmen in the suburb of Gombak in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur on Saturday.

He also said 14 bullet slugs were retrieved from the victim's body.

On Sunday, the inspector general of the Malaysian police, Mohamad Fuzi Harun, gave an update on the investigation.

"A settling of scores among terrorist organisations, among terrorists, among various factions, is something that we see from time to time".

The initial take by his family was that he was just a Palestinian "scholar" who was killed by the Israeli Mossad because Israeli can't stand educated Palestinians. "It is definitely the work of Mossad. So (Israel) think he is risky".

Al-Batsh leaves behind a wife and three young children. It was the second high-profile killing of a foreigner in Malaysia in just over a year.

The tunnel collapse on Sunday comes to the background of rising tensions along the Israel-Gaza border for the past four consecutive weeks coined the "March of Return".

Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon urged worldwide organizations to condemn the Islamic militant Hamas group for its use of children as a hide for terror-related activities.
