The head of the Hamas students wing in Damascus has been killed in a car accident, Syrian sources confirmed to the London-based al-Quds newspaper Saturday. A top Hamas official vehemently denied Israeli reports that the man, Isham Abu Libda, had run the office of Hamas leader Khaled Mashhal and that he had been assassinated in a hit-and-run. "Such fabricated reports that have no truth to them are part of a series lies and rumors propagated by the [Israeli] occupation authorities against the movement and its leaders in a Zionist bid to cause confusion within its rank," the official told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC).
