GAZA (Sputnik) — The military wing of the Palestinian Hamas group has accused Israeli intelligence of assassinating the head of its drone program in Tunisia.
On December 15, media reported that engineer Mohamed Zawwari was shot to death when he was leaving his house in the Tunisian city of Sfax.
Israeli authorities have not yet commented on the allegations.
Hamas, an Islamist political and militant group, supports the creation of an independent state of Palestine and wants Israel to withdraw from the Palestinian territories it occupied after the 1967 war. The group governs the Gaza Strip independent from Palestinian authorities.
