Bulk 238KUALA LUMPUR (PNIC):-At dawn in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lampur, Palestinian academic Fadi al-Batsh was shot and killed by unknown assailants while heading for dawn prayer.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim, as quoted by The Star newspaper, said that 35-year-old al-Batsh was on his way to a nearby mosque at around 6 am when two men on a motorcycle opened fire at him at Jalan Gombak.

Lazim pointed out that the two gunmen fired ten shots at him and that there were four bullet wounds on his body, adding that investigations are ongoing.

Al-Batsh, a father of three, was a lecturer at a private Malaysian university. He was a resident of Jabalia city in the northern Gaza Strip before coming to Malaysia.

After obtaining a PhD in electrical engineering from the Malaysian university of Malaya and achieving many scientific successes, al-Batsh received many prestigious awards and was the first Arab to receive the Malaysian Khazanah award in 2016.

During his academic journey, al-Batsh published 18 research papers in international journals. He also took part in many international conferences in Japan, Britain, Finland, Spain, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia.

The Palestinian lecturer lost 18 of his family members in the massacre committed against al-Batsh family during the 2014 offensive on Gaza.
