Meanwhile, Humanitarian Care Malaysia Chief Executive Officer Kamarul Zaman Shaharul Anwar, who attended the funeral, said an unnamed Malaysian couple will accompany Fadi's family to Palestine.

The prevailing sentiment is that Mossad was indeed behind the latest slaying, as al-Batsh was believed to have been working on the Hamas unmanned aerial vehicle program and was working on improving the accuracy of its rockets.

Hamas, the terrorist organization that exercises complete political and military control over the Gaza Strip blamed Israel for killing Fadi al-Batsh, who was described by the terrorist group's leader, Ismail Haniyeh, as a member of Hamas with "an honorable reputation in science".

"It was a brutal attack. we want them to be taken to court and given the heaviest punishment", he said.

Police also released images of two motorcycles, a BMW and a Kawasaki, one of which was believed to have been ridden by the suspects.

The Mossad has been accused in the past of eliminating figures who supplied Palestinian and Lebanese terror groups with advanced technology, as well as of assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists.

It said Al Batsh had a doctorate in electrical engineering and power electronics from the University of Malaya and received his master's and bachelor's degrees in electrical engineering from the Islamic University of Gaza, an independent school in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

They show two light-skinned suspects who may be European or Middle Eastern, the police chief said, according to a recording of his comments heard by Reuters. He said Egypt had agreed to allow the body to be returned through its border with Gaza.

Israel has a long history of suspected targeting of wanted Palestinian militants in daring overseas operations around the globe and has been linked to other assassinations as well, though it has rarely publicly acknowledged them.

Israel's use of live fire, killing at least 35 Palestinians, has drawn worldwide criticism.

The boy's father, Jamil Fayoumi, told Xinhua that his son's treatment "was delayed whe he needed an urgent surgery for the wound, as the Israeli side refused to provide him a permission to leave Gaza for [the] West Bank or an Israeli hospital".

Fuzi said the photofits were done by police experts, based on witnesses' statements.
