Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh hinted that the Gaza-based terror group will seek to internationalize its campaign against Israel following the assassination of a one of its drone experts in Malaysia.

Fadi Mohammad al-Batsh was an expert in electrical engineering and drone technology. He was on his way to a mosque in Kuala Lumpur when he was shot to death by two unknown assailants who escaped on a motorcycle.

The Malaysian deputy prime minister said that his government was investigating the possible involvement of “foreign agents” in the assassination.

Hamas has acknowledged that al-Batsh was a member of the organization’s terrorist wing.
