Hamas on Friday claimed that Israel assassinated a top Izzadin Kassam Brigades leader in Dubai, according to a Reuters report.

The report quoted a Damascus-based Hamas spokesman, Izzat al-Rishq, as saying that Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was killed last week, on January 20.

According to the source, Mabhouh was an “important” member of Hamas’s military arm.

Giving no other details, Rishq said that Mabhouh was killed a day after arriving in the UAE capital.
