Haneyya: Murderers of scientist Batsh will pay heavy price
Political Bureau Chairman of Hamas, Ismail Haneyya, vowed that Hamas will leave no stone unturned until the circumstances and perpetrators of the deadly drive-by shooting against engineer Fadi al-Batsh are revealed.
Speaking with the Palestinian Information Center (PIC), Haneyya said: “Those who assassinated al-Batsh will pay a heavy price for their horrendous crime,” said Haneyya.
The Hamas chief held the Israeli occupation and Mossad spy agency responsible for the crime.
“Al-Batsh has been among Palestine’s best representatives thanks to his knowledge, work, professionalism, creativity, and inventions. He has given much to the Palestinians, Malaysians, and the entire Muslim nation,” he added.
Fadi Mohammed al-Batsh, 35, was born in Jabaliya, in the northern Gaza Strip. He was killed in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at the hands of unknown gunmen at dawn Saturday 21/4/2018 and is survived by his wife and three children. He has been living in Malaysia for many years.
He has obtained his BAs and MAs degrees in electrical engineering from the Islamic University of Gaza in late 2009.
Al-Batsh received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Malaya, Malaysia, in 2015. His research was entitled “Raising the efficiency of power transmission networks using power electronics technology.”
Al-Batsh was assassinated by two unknown gunmen who fired several bullets at him hitting his head and body when he was attempting to head for dawn prayer in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. His family pointed fingers at the Israeli Mossad.
His family holds the Israeli Mossad responsible for the murder, calling on the Malaysian government to open an urgent investigation to reveal the circumstances of the assassination.
