BREAKING: Malaysia Police releases photofit of two suspects believed to have assassinated Hamas engineer-terrorist Fadi al-Batsh.
The pictures have also been released to authorities at all the country’s exit points.
The suspects are believed to be either of European or Middle Eastern origin.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said police compiled the photo-fits based on eyewitness descriptions.
“We have experts who compiled the photo-fits based on eyewitnesses but we cannot reveal much about those who spoke to us,” he told reporters.
Mohamad Fuzi said the two suspects are believed to be either of European or Middle Eastern descent.
“The suspects are well-built and approximately 180cm tall with fair complexions,” he said, adding that it was uncertain if they were still in the country.
He added that the suspects were believed to be riding BMW GS and Kawasaki Versys motorcycles.
“We also retrieved 14 bullets slugs from the body of the victim following a post-mortem.
“We have sent these slugs to our weapons experts for further analysis,” he said.
In the assassination last Saturday (April 21), two men in full-faced helmets riding high-powered motorcycles waited 20 minutes in the dark near Jalan Meranti in Setapak, before eliminating Hamas engineer-terrorist Fadi al-Batsh.
At a mourning tent in Gaza, a banner described the engineer-terrorist as a member of Hamas military wing Al-Qassam, whose sole mission is to murder Israelis.
Israeli media reported that he was also deeply involved in the Hamas drone development project.
According to experts, the elimination is just another operation in a long list of assassinations, in and outside Gaza, against the minds taking part in the development of Hamas terror group’s aerial system.
Hamas has been trying to develop unmanned aerial vehicles in order to use them in terror attacks against Israelis.
