The right-hand man of a Hamas leader assassinated in Dubai has confirmed Israeli claims that his boss supplied weapons to Palestinian fighters. Mohammed Nassar spoke to Hamas' Al Aqsa radio in Gaza from Damascus. A transcript was released on Tuesday.
Nassar was an aide to Mahmoud Al Mabhouh, who was assassinated January 19. Israel is widely suspected, but has not confirmed or denied involvement.
Al Mabhouh allegedly smuggled weapons from Iran to Gaza.
Nassar says Al Mabhouh "never stopped thinking about how to fight the occupation by supplying quality weapons to the Palestinian fighters."The aide also describes how Al Mabhouh celebrated killing two Israeli soldiers in the mid-1980s by standing on one of the corpses.
