IN MOSSAD ASSASSINATION OF
HAMAS COMMANDER IN DUBAI
Six more British passports were used in the assassination of a Hamas commander in a Dubai hotel last month, police have claimed. Police named six new Britons whose identities were used in the hit as Philip Carr, Gabriella Barney, Stephen Drake, Mark Sklur, Daniel Schnur and Roy Cannon.
The revelation from Dubai today means that up to 12 British identities are believed to have been stolen or forged to carry out the hit, allegedly by Israel's feared secret service, Mossad.
The claim came as Dubai identified 15 new suspects in the killing today. The 15 new named suspects bring the total hit squad up to 26. Up to six women are now believed to have been part of the hit squad.
Of the 15 new suspects, 11 are believed to have been part of the execution squad sent to Dubai. With the 11 suspects previously identified by police, that brings the total hit squad in Dubai up to 22.
One of the six new British passports is in the name of a dark-haired woman calling herself Gabriella Barney. She appears to have been posing as the daughter of Michael Barney, named as one of the original 11 suspects.
At least 14 of the suspects are also believed to have used credit cards issued by the same bank, Al Arabiya television said today. MetaBank, an Iowa, U.S.-based savings bank, has not yet commented on the allegations.
