Dubai has widened its search for the killers of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, it emerged today, with officials confirming that at least six of the Hamas commanders assassins remain unaccounted for.
Police in Dubai have issued international arrest warrants for 11 suspects in the case, but now believe the team behind the murder numbered at least 17.
The six unknown killers include a second woman who was part of the final surveillance team in the lobby of al-Mabhouhs Dubai hotel as the murder took place on the evening of January 19. The woman arrived at the hotel at 18.41 dressed as a tourist and wearing a large summer hat. She was accompanied by a large man in a Panama hat and beard.
Another unknown man was part of the core team of seven that carried out the killing in room 230 of the luxury Al Bustan Rotana hotel. Within minutes of the murder taking place, the man is seen leaving the hotel with a woman who was carrying a fake Irish passport in the name of Gail Folliard.

I seem to recall an Israeli warship passed through the Suez Canal about a week ago.
Maybe to pick up a Mossad hit team?
When the muscle team gets back into the elevator, one is wearing a latex exam glove on his left hand. ( Oops! )
The last male/female surveillance team, the one with the female in the floppy hat, when they go out the lobby glass door, the male uses the knuckles of his had to push the door open. :) Nice!
Think about this...they are hinting of up to seventeen folks involved. Would Mossad send that many? No. They’d pick three guys max.
How do we come to 17? I’m guessing that three or four different teams were contracted out by different bosses to do the hit, and they all met up. The cost? If this was one boss with the entire contract and 17 players....it’s a huge payoff for the whole group....which I just can’t imagine something like this occurring.
Sounds like this guy pissed off a LOT of people.
There were not that many people involved. They only think 17 were involved.
Whatever the number, they got results.
It started out as Oceans 11 and now we’re up to Oceans 17!
I’m going to have to rewatch, I didn’t catch the knuckles bit. I thought it was a bandage on the guy’s arm.
Could well be more. Safe houses in country. Distraction teams outside the hotel.
The old meme, dial telephone, no security camera era is over.
LOLOL, curiouser and curiouser . . . .
BwwwwwahahahahahaHaHa, o.m.g., you are so funny, LOL
I didn't know about that specific video confession -- maybe Mossad DID do this, and made sure to get spotted on the job, lest there be ANY confusion as to who the real perps were.
Well, there won't be any fictionalized film about this incident --- it sounds like there's enough footage to make a two hour long documentary, LOLOLO
I love the Mossad.
By this time next week, the list will include everyone with a foreign passport who happened to be in Dubai at the time. Thanks OldDeckHand.
I AM SPARTACUS!!
