Al- Mabhouh killers allegedly carried Irish passports

Belfast's Evening Herald reported on Friday that the killers of Hamas terrorist and arms dealer Mahmoud al-Mabhouh carried Irish passports. Significantly, the story is headlined "Israeli Dubai assassins carried Irish passports."
The suspected Israeli hit team, including at least one woman, entered the United Arab Emirates using Irish documents, police authorities said.


A Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman told the Herald today: "We are aware of the media reports and we are in contact with authorities locally to try and determine the truth of the reports."

Al-Mabhouh was said to have been shocked with an electric weapon held to his legs and then suffocated or poisoned.

Iran and Hamas have blamed Israel for the killing, but Israeli news media claimed al-Mabhouh had many enemies and could have been killed by other Arab factions.

Up to seven people were said to have been involved in al-Mabhouh's killing, four of whom used Irish passports to enter Dubai and who later fled to a "European country" after the killing, according to policesources in Dubai.


Declining to reveal their identities, an official said UAE security personnel were co-ordinating with Interpol to have them extradited.


In 1986, US officials, including Oliver North, reportedly used Irish passports to travel to Iran to offer missiles for hostages.

The passports were said to be real but the identities written into the documents were fake.
