Two Palestinian scientists found dead in an apartment in Algeria


Two Palestinian scientists have been found dead in an apartment in Algiers, says the Palestinian Embassy in Algeria

Suliman al-Farra, 34, and Mohammed Albana, both from Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip, were found dead in an apartment on Sunday

Based on preliminary findings, the pair either died of gas inhalation or due to electrocution from a short circuit

Palestinian reports claim the two scientists were assassinated

A local news agency in Gaza said that “the death occurred two days ago and was discovered by incident on Sunday evening after the neighbors smelled the smell of gas scattered in the building

It also noted that police found one of the corpses near the door, while the other found in the bed

“We don’t have any more details, I expect the authorities in Algeria and the Palestinian embassy there to do everything necessary to understand what happened,” said Albana’s brother

Over the recent years multiple Palestinian scientists have been killed around the world, most of the cases have been linked to Israel’s Mossad espionage agency

In April the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement said Israel’s spy agency Mossad was behind the assassination of a Palestinian lecturer in Malaysi
