Umno Youth Condemns Palestinian Lecturer's Killing, Calls For Probe Into Mossad Involvement

KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Youth has condemned the murder of Dr Fadi M.R. Albatsh, calling on Malaysians to stand united in upholding the rule of law.

Its deputy chief Khairul Azwan Harun said the murder should never have happened, adding that media suspicion that it had been perpetrated by Israel’s intelligence agency, Mossad, must be investigated.

“As Malaysians, we must understand that this issue is now being featured on the world stage. Our response and investigation into the matter will be scrutinised thoroughly.

“We must stand behind our government as proper investigations are unfolding. It is not a matter to politicise nor should it be political (ammunition) for anyone to use in this (general election).”

Khairul Azwan said Israeli violence against the Palestinian people had long been going on and was “inhumane and atrocious”.

“(Umno Youth also) condemns Israeli authorities, in their occupation of Palestine, for disallowing the body of Fadi to be returned to his family.”
