Israeli troops kill four more Palestinians as protests continue in Gaza

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh on Saturday accused Israel's Mossad spy agency of killing Batsh in Kuala Lumpur and vowed revenge: "The Mossad is not far from this disgraceful, bad crime".

"We will stay here until we reclaim our lands", said Ahmed Nasman, 21, speaking in a protest tent camp east of Gaza City, as activists near him prepared kites. Israeli media, however, reported that the Palestinian scientist was linked to the "drone and rocket" programs of Hamas.

Malaysia's deputy prime minister, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, said the government was looking into the possibility that "foreign agents" were involved in his killing. It accused Hamas of putting Palestinian civilians, including children, in "unnecessary danger" on Friday by using them "to carry out terror attacks and destroy infrastructure under the guise of smoke and riots". The ceremony is typical for senior Hamas commanders.

Malaysian police say the 34-year-old was shot by two assailants who fired at least eight bullets from a motorbike as he was heading to a mosque for dawn prayers in Kuala Lumpur. Two suspects had awaited the victim for some 20 minutes and then gunned him down, fleeing the scene on a motorcycle, according to local police.

The funeral service by the Islamic movement's militant wing suggested al-Batsh was one of its military commanders.

Palestinian representative to Malaysia Anwar al-Agha said Fadi's body would be taken back to the Palestinian territories for burial.

Many repeated claims that Israel's national intelligence agency, Mossad, were behind the killed of Fadi, who is said to have links with Palestine's Hamas.

Since late March, 32 Palestinians were killed and more than 1,600 wounded by Israeli army fire in these protests, according to Gaza health officials.

While Malaysian police are still investigating the shooting of the engineering professor at Universiti Kuala Lumpur, the world media was quick to speculate about the circumstances of the murder. He had lived in Malaysia for the past 10 years.

Batsh was an inventor and a private university lecturer. His official biography lists his research interests included power converters, power quality and renewable energy.
