Israeli lawmaker calls to 'assassinate Haniya like Mabhouh'

World Bulletin / News Desk

A member of the Israeli parliament (Knesset) called to assassinate Hamas Prime Minister of the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian news agency said.

MK Yariv Levin has called for liquidating Ismail Haniya, Hamas leadr in Gaza, similar to what happened to Qassam leader Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh, Palestine-info said.

The head of the parliamentary committee in the Knesset voiced his call when the Knesset was debating a proposal by an Arab member demanding a discussion into the involvement of the Mossad in the assassination of Mabhouh in Dubai. The proposal was rejected.

Mabhouh, who was born in the Gaza Strip but had lived in Syria since 1989, was killed in his hotel room on Jan. 19, a day after he arrived in Dubai.

Dubai has identified 15 new European suspects in the assassination of a Hamas official at a Dubai luxury hotel, bringing the total number of suspects involved in the death to 26.

Dubai has said he is "99, if not 100 percent" sure that Mossad was behind the assassination, and added on Saturday that Dubai had evidence, including wiretaps, of the agency's role.
