Suspected Israeli Mossad Hitman was arrested in Malaysia

A man, believed to be an Israeli national, was recently detained in Malaysia under suspicion of being a potential operative for the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency. The individual, who was found with an arsenal of six firearms, had entered the country using a French passport.

The announcement of the arrest was made by Razarudin Husain, the Inspector-General of Police, during a press briefing on Friday. The suspect, a 36-year-old man, had arrived in Malaysia on March 12 and was residing in a hotel in Kuala Lumpur, the nation’s capital, at the time of his apprehension.

Husain revealed that during the interrogation, the suspect presented another passport, this one issued by Israel. The firearms were discovered in a bag in his hotel room.

The man informed the police that he had travelled to Malaysia with the intention of locating and eliminating a fellow Israeli national, attributing his motive to a “family issue”. However, Husain stated that the suspect declined to provide details about his profession, leading investigators to consider the possibility of his association with Mossad.

Husain expressed scepticism about the suspect’s claims, suggesting that he might have an ulterior motive, especially considering that he had been in the country since March 12. It was also discovered that the weapons had been purchased using cryptocurrency.

The police are currently investigating the methods used to smuggle the assortment of pistols into the country. In addition to the firearms, the police confiscated approximately 200 rounds of ammunition. It was noted that three of the guns were loaded.

The ongoing investigation suggests that the suspected operative likely had collaborators within the country and could potentially be part of a larger network. “We have yet to identify the others. We also plan to verify the authenticity of his passport with the French embassy,” stated the Inspector-General.

As of now, there have been no public comments on the matter from either France or Israel.
