Police have summoned the group editor of New Straits Times over a series of exposé on Mossad’s operations to abduct Palestinians here.
Farrah Naz Karim received a call from one Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Faizal at 9.45pm last night telling her to appear at the Dang Wangi police headquarters at 1pm today.
The police officer did not divulge why Farrah Naz was being called in. The NST is now trying to get Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim for clarification on why she was being summoned.
The NST had exposed how a Mossad operation to abduct two Palestinians unfolded at Jalan Yap Kuan Seng on Sept 28.
It was revealed, a group of locals, including a woman, had acted as Israeli operatives to abduct two high-value Palestinians, said to be linked to Hamas who are based here.
The operatives, however, bungled their assignment when they only managed to capture one of the Palestinians as the other escaped and immediately lodged a police report. It was only quick action of the police which led to the discovery of where the agents had driven their victims to.
Police raided a chalet in Hulu Langat and walked into an on-going interrogation by two Israeli men via a video call.
The abducted Palestinian was found tied up to a chair and badly beaten up.
The stories have since been widely picked up by the media leading to caretaker Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin yesterday pledging that this particular case was being dealt with.
NST today carried a note of gratitude expressed by Gaza’s Ministry of Interior and Security towards the Malaysian police for rescuing their citizens from the clutches of Mossad.
This newspaper has also exposed that the botched operation is not the end of Mossad’s plans on Malaysian soil.
More than six Palestinians in the country are said to be Mossad targets, as they are considered to have skills deemed as a threat by the Israelis. – NST
