According to a Malaysian news outlet, a Palestinian guy has kidnapped off a street in the Malaysian city of Kuala Lumpur and interrogated before being released by police. It is thought that Israel’s spy agency Mossad was responsible.

According to Malaysia’s New Straits Times, four men involved in the “snatch-and-grab” operation on the evening of September 28 shoved the Palestinian computer programmer into one of two waiting automobiles.

The unnamed kidnapped guy was abused while being driven to a house outside of the capital, where he was chained to a chair and asked questions via video chat about the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Hamas political party in Palestine.

The victim had a video call set up in front of them. Two males on the line said to him, “You know why you are here,” according to the news source, who assumed them to be Israelis.

The news source continued, “For the following 24 hours, the victim was interrogated and assaulted by the Malaysian agents when his replies were not to the Israelis’ satisfaction.”

According to a source with knowledge of the case, “the Israelis wanted to know about his competence in computer application development, Hamas’ strength in developing software, and members of the Al-Qassam Brigade that he knew and their strengths.”

The insider added that the Malaysian kidnappers’ squad had “bungled” the abduction since they had let a second Palestinian victim to escape. The insider claimed that the Malaysian agents had not covered their faces, and neither had they attached phoney licence plates to their cars.

The second Palestinian man, who was dubbed a “more prized capture,” was able to alert the police, who were able to follow the car’s licence plate to a residence where the kidnappers were apprehended and the victim was released.

According to the source, both Palestinians have now left Malaysia.

An inquiry had revealed a “Mossad cell” in Malaysia that was engaged in spying on significant locations, such as airports, and attempting to infiltrate “government electronic companies,” a “well-informed Malaysian source” acknowledged to Al Jazeera Arabic.

Al Jazeera Arabic, which also quoted Malaysian media, reported that Mossad had hired a cell of at least 11 Malaysians bent on finding Palestinian activists. The source claimed that Mossad had employed Malaysian operatives it trained in Europe to carry out the operation.

Fadi al-Batsh, a Palestinian academic, was shot dead in Malaysia in 2018 as he travelled to Kuala Lumpur for morning prayers. Mossad has previously been implicated in the killing.

Al-family Batsh’s claimed that Mossad was responsible for the murder.

According to state news agency Bernama, Malaysia’s then-deputy prime minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi stated at the time that the suspects were thought to be Europeans with connections to a foreign intelligence agency.

Al-Batsh, a member of Hamas, was ambushed by two people in Kuala Lumpur’s Setapak neighbourhood after they allegedly waited there for about 20 minutes. They allegedly fired at least 10 bullets, four of which struck al-Batsh in the head, killing him instantly.

Al-Batsh was allegedly murdered by Mossad, according to Hamas. Israel rejected the accusation.

The Jerusalem Post reported on Tuesday regarding Mossad’s alleged involvement in the Malaysian kidnapping, stating that Israel’s agency claimed it was “their policy to target Hamas activists anywhere” during the 2021 Israeli-Hamas conflict, which claimed the lives of more than 230 people in Gaza and 12 in Israel.
