“Mossad loves killing people in bedrooms” – author

There is no doubt that the Hamas leader’s murder in Dubai hotel is a Mossad job. Moreover, its agents have deliberately showed their faces to CCTV cameras, said espionage expert and author Gordon Thomas.

“It fits all the patterns they have done before,” he said. “First, it was in a bedroom. They love killing people in bedrooms.”

According to Thomas, the probable scenario which unfolded could be the following: An attractive woman from the squad was used as a pickup, in the bedroom the woman would have either injected the man or left the door open so that the other killers could enter.

”There were at least four in the team of the actual execution. There will be a backup driver to get them our fast, she would be a seductress and the two who would do the killing,” Thomas added.

He went on to add that the agents could have deliberately exposed themselves to the CCTV cameras in the hotel.

”I think it is a deliberate attempt to say ‘Don’t mess with us’,” Thomas said. “Other examples of that: in the past when they wanted someone to be executed, they sent a wreath to his family beforehand, they sent a coffin once, an empty coffin and they have also published in Arab newspapers in memoriam notices.”

Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was found dead in his hotel room in Al Bustan Rotana hotel near Dubai airport on January 20.

Forensic experts say Al-Mabhouh was killed by attackers who drugged and then suffocated him with a pillow.
