Israel may be involved in Arafat's killing: Palestinians

 

The Palestinians believes that Israel may be involved in "assassination" of Yasser Arafat, after Swiss reports came out that Arafat was killed by poisoning. Israel is the one and only enemy of Palestinians and regarding Yasser Arafat's killing by poisoning we will continue to confirm all the details about the sensitive matter and all elements of the case," Tawfiq Tirawi, head of the inquiry team of Palestinian Authority for the leader's death said . Tirawi said that reports released by Swiss scientists are under investigation and we our team had studied the findings of released document. Last year, Arafat's body was exhumed and samples were taken to investigate the rumours of poisoning to Arafat. While the Swiss team said the reports of Arafat's body neither confirmed nor denied polonium was the actual cause of his death, although they provided "moderate" backing for the idea he was poisoned by the rare and highly radioactive element. Israel again denied killing Arafat."I will state this as simply and clearly as I can: Israel did not kill Arafat. Period. And that's all there is to it," foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told AFP..
