Fadi Mohammad al-Batsh, a member of the Islamist terror group Hamas said to be a rocket-making expert, was shot by motorbike-riding attackers Saturday as he walked from his Kuala Lumpur home to a mosque for dawn prayers.

"All exit points (out of the country) have been alerted and told that the two suspects must be arrested", he said.

Police say they believe the 2 men are still in Malaysia.

Speaking at press conference this morning, the Inspector General of Police told reporters that he may have used fake documents to enter the country.

Authorities had originally released computer-generated photographs of the suspects, who witnesses described as well-built and light-skinned, possibly Middle Eastern or European.

The case has drawn attention to the possible involvement of Israel's intelligence agency, Mossad.

Fatah reiterated its call for the global community, United Nations bodies and organizations, human rights institutions, and the worldwide Federation of Journalist (IFJ) to intervene in order to protect the Palestinian journalists and stop Israel's crimes against them.

The bodies of the two soldiers - Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul - are now being held by Hamas, along with two Israeli civilians, Avera Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed, who entered Gaza of their own volition in 2014 and 2015, respectively.

Mossad is believed to have assassinated Palestinian militants and scientists in the past, but rarely confirms such operations.

Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman had appealed to Egypt to refuse the Palestinian request.

Reports also say Batsh was an electrical engineering lecturer at a Malaysian university.

The Palestinian journalists' union accused Israel of "deliberately" targeting Abu Hussein and Murtaja, vowing to seek to bring "leaders of the occupation" to justice. But since the doctors had stabilized his condition, the decision was made to transfer him to an Israeli hospital.
