Dubai has pointed the finger of blame at Israel’s national intelligence agency, Mossad, for the suspected hit-squad assassination of Hamas military commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. “Officials in Dubai have all but given up hope of catching the killers of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh after admitting that Mossad is its prime suspect. Even if the assassins were somehow identified, the United Arab Emirates has no diplomatic relations with Israel, let alone judicial co-operation agreements. Dubai police have never ruled Mossad out of their investigation but have stopped short of accusing Israel’s spy agency directly until now. However, with at least seven of the eleven named suspects in the case now revealed to have used the stolen identities of Israelis with dual nationalities, officials in the Gulf state concede that all the evidence points to a hit ordered by Tel Aviv. The Hamas leader was assassinated in his Dubai hotel room last month. Officials in Dubai have confirmed that the Gulf state is now considering rescinding the 11 international arrest warrants issued on Tuesday, including the six British citizens initially named as suspects.”
