Dubai police have identified four more suspects, carrying British and Irish passports, in the terror operation against Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh last month.
“The UAE has identified two British suspects holding British travel documents, and as part of the ongoing investigation has shared the information with the British government,” Reuters quoted a source in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as saying on Tuesday.
Two more suspects holding Irish passports were also identified, the source added.
This brings to fifteen the number of individuals who entered the UAE with European passports to engage in the terrorist murder of al-Mabhouh on January 20 in Dubai, allegedly on behalf of the Israeli government.
Dubai police formerly released the identities of eleven European passport holders, including six British, three Irish, a Germans and a French, who are widely believed to have been Mossad agents carrying forged documents.
Police said that despite Israel’s attempts to deny involvement in the assassination, they are “99% certain” that the terror operation was carried out by Tel Aviv’s notorious spy agency.
