The body of a Hamas engineer assassinated in Malaysia will be transferred to the Gaza Strip on Wednesday afternoon, according to a Hamas source.
The engineer's wife and children will pass through the Rafah crossing along with the body, the source stated.
Hamas blamed Israel's Mossad for assassinating the engineer. Israeli officials denied involvement but Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman asked Egypt not to allow the body to be returned to Gaza.
