Iran blamed Israel on Tuesday for the killing of a Hamas commander in Dubai last month. "This is another indication of the existence of state terrorism by the Zionist regime (Israel)," Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told a news conference. "This shows the violation of other countries' sovereignty by this regime."
Israel's government has declined official comment on the Jan. 20 death of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai, which Hamas on Friday announced as an assassination. But Israeli security sources linked him to rockets and other arms that reach Gaza from Iran. (Reuters)
