20-year-old Gaza Palestinian dies of Israeli gunfire wounds

April FrancisApr 23, 2018

Batsh's uncle Jamal al-Batsh, said he believed Mossad was behind the killing because "Israel knows Palestine will be liberated by scientists".

Mr Lieberman told Israeli radio that the scientist was a rocket expert and "no saint". However, the United Nations, the European Union and rights groups have questioned Israel's use of force when soldiers' lives are not in danger and the U.N. and E.U. have called for investigations.

Hamas has accused Israel of conducting assassinations of its experts overseas in the past, although Mossad has never confirmed such operations.

A Palestinian scholar has been shot dead by two assailants in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, as he was heading to a mosque for dawn prayers, according to local police.

"A settling of scores among terrorist organisations, among terrorists, among various factions, is something that we see from time to time". He visited the mourning tent outside the house of al-Batsh's family in Jabaliya in the north of the Gaza Strip.

The report also said the two gunmen, both wearing helmets, arrived at the scene and waited for the victim for some 20 minutes before carrying out the attack.

The magic is no longer there, however, and it just might have something to do with Brian Elliott being no Bernie Parent ... They had no shots on a second-period power play, and it took them 9:21 to get their first shot in that stanza.

Mr Batsh, who had lived in Malaysia for about 10 years, was a lecturer in electrical engineering. According to the IDF, "the terror organizations in the Gaza Strip, headed by Hamas, continued to use civilians, including youth and children, as a disguise for different terror acts to damage security infrastructures".

Monday's deaths raise to 34 the numbers of Palestinians killed in mass protests along the border since March 30.

Israel's military is investigating the death of a Palestinian teen killed during protests on the Gaza-Israel border.

Israel's defense minister Avigdor Liberman on Sunday reiterated his "absolute support" for IDF troops stationed on the border.

The demonstrations are set to climax with a massive march to the border on May 15, when Palestinians mark the "nakba", or catastrophe, of their uprooting during the war over Israel's creation in 1948.

Israel says it has only opened fire when necessary to guard its border and prevent violence, but no Israelis have been wounded and its open-fire rules have come under scrutiny.
