Dubai will be issuing an arrest warrant against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should it turn out that the Mossad was behind a recent assassination of a senior Hamas man in the Emirates, a police official said Thursday.


The senior official told the al-Jazeera network that Dubai will seek to arrest PM Netanyahu "because of the fact that he was the one to approve the execution of the crime in the United Arab Emirates."


Senior Hamas member Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was murdered in a Dubai hotel on January 20th. However, Hamas only publicized the assassination nine days later.


On Monday, Hamas' Muhammad Nazal charged that al-Mabhouh was attacked by Mossad agents who ambushed him in his hotel room.


"When he arrived, they surprised him," Nazal said.


On Wednesday, Dubai Chief of Police Lieutenant Colonel Dahi Khalfan Tamim warned both Hamas and the Mossad against operating in Dubai territory behind the backs of local authorities.


"Anyone trying to operate behind our back should watch his own back," Tamim said to the London-based newspaper El-Shark El-Awsat.


"This applies to all intelligence agencies in the world," he continued, "whether Mossad, Hamas or any other intelligence organization."
