SHAFAQNA (Shia News Association) — A Palestinian official says Mossad was behind the assassination of a senior Hamas member in the Syrian capital Damascus.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Kamal Hussein Ghannaja was killed in a suburb of Damascus on Wednesday.
“A group of people entered his home in Qudsaya… where he was liquidated.”
“According to our information, Mossad was behind the assassination,” the official said.
Ghannaja was one of the deputies of Mahmud al-Mabhuh, a senior Hamas commander who was killed in a hotel room in Dubai in January 2010.
Investigations into the incident suggested that Mossad also had a role in the 2010 killing.
Meanwhile, Israeli Minister for Military Affairs Ehud Barak claimed that it was not “necessarily right” that the Israeli spy agency had been behind the Wednesday assassination —www.shafaqna.com/english/
