New Mossad chief Tamir Pardo intends to apologize to the British for the intelligence agency's use of UK passports in the January assassination of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, the Telegraph reported on Saturday.

Israel has not officially acknowledged that it was behind the assassination of Mabhouh.

The Mossad's station chief in London was expelled in March after an investigation reportedly revealed that Israeli agents used British passports in the Mabhouh hit.

According to the Telegraph report, Pardo's predecessor, Meir Dagan, refused to apologize to the British for the cloning of the passports.
