Abu Zuhri asks Australia to prosecute killers of Mabhouh
Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, said that the Australian expulsion of an Israeli diplomat from his embassy in Canberra was an additional proof that Israel was involved in the assassination crime of Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh in Dubai.
Abu Zuhri told the PIC on Monday that the Australian step was not enough and that it should prosecute the killers of Mabhouh.
The spokesman said that the step also indicated that countries around the world were realizing the danger of the “Zionist entity” on the world security and that it was directly responsible for that crime.
The Australian foreign ministry ordered the expulsion of an Israeli diplomat over his government’s use of forged Australian passports in Mabhouh’s murder.
It said in a statement on Monday that the step would materialize within a week, adding that investigations proved Israel’s involvement in the forgery of Australian passports.
Britain took a similar step two months ago and expelled an Israeli diplomat after evidence showed Israel’s involvement in forging British passports and using them in the assassination crime.
