Dubai police chief: Mossad head should be arrested if Israel behind killing of top Hamas man.
Interpol added the 11 suspected assassins allegedly responsible for last month's Dubai assassination of a Hamas strongman to their most wanted list, Haaretz learned on Thursday.
The individuals who were charged by Dubai police as responsible for the killing of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh were tagged with "Red Notices," according to the Interpol's official website.
The website also specifies that Interpol chose to publish the photos of the suspected assassins since the identities the perpetrators allegedly used were fake, using fraudulent passports to aid them in accomplishing their aim.
Also Thursday, the Dubai police chief ahi Khalfan Tamim said Interpol should issue a warrant to help locate and arrest the head of Israel's spy agency Mossad if the organization was responsible for the killing of a Hamas militant in Dubai.

Here’s a very gripping robo camera account of the operation. Long but you can hop through it and still get the gist: http://video.gulfnews.com/services/player/bcpid4267205001?bctid=66672644001
Even the Egyptians consider Meir Dagan to be an Israeli “Superhero” — ain’t no way no how that anybody gonna arrest him.
These people need to be awarded for getting rid of a scumbag not hunted.
1 will get ya 10 ALL those heroes have had cosmetic surgery and look completely different with new names and histories.
No way they`ll ever be captured by INTERPOL and most likely they won`t be looking very hard too.
I’m sure these professionals had their faces well-disguised. This operation was well thought through. I’m sure they also knew exactly where the security cameras were and exactly when they were in camera range.
This is the same INTERPOL that Obama gave immunity (via EO) to operate in the US.
The sheriff puts Rambo on his most wanted list.
No need for surgery. Plenty of ways to change facial appearance temporarily for the mission, and then go back to original appearance afterwards. Apparatus mounted on the teeth can change the appearance/size of visible teeth, and change the shape of the cheeks and jawline. Cosmetic tape and or skin-shrinking coatings can change skin folds, skin tightness, and eye shape. Contact lenses can change eye color. Skin treatments can change color of skin. High quality prosthetics and wigs can change hair including hairline, nose, chin, cheekbones, etc. These were serious professionals. Certainly had access to the sort of make-up artists and supplies that are used for movies, to produce natural-looking “aliens”. Interpol can study the security videos all day and they’ll never see anything resembling what these people really look like. Though they may see people who look a great deal like *other* people.
But I agree, Interpol is most likely just pretending to be seriously hunting for these people. All they did was take out a guy who was wanted by Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and possibly the Palestinian Authority as well http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/2010/02/who-killed-mahmoud-al-mabhouh.html This article claims that 4 of the participants in the operation have been identified. I have my doubts about that, but if so, it’s because they didn’t mind being identified. Or because they have multiple identities with multiple appearances, and only an expendable identity has been “identified” for each of the four.
“Airport officials carried out routine retinal scans on 11 suspects sought by Dubai when they entered the country in the days before the hit. “
Do they do that routine retinal scans often?
err sounds funny is all?
As I suspected, Dubai has no effing clue who these people were.
“In Dublin, Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs said it could not find the three suspects in passport records and the numbers listed were counterfeit because they have the wrong number of digits and contain no letters. “Ireland has issued no passports in those names,” the department said in a statement to The Associated Press.
Germany’s Interior Ministry also said the five-digit passport number given for the lone German suspect is too short and lacks the letters that now appear on its passports.
Melvyn Adam Mildiner, 31, one of the men identified by the Dubai police Monday as a suspect, was shocked when an AP reporter reached him on the phone in Israel and read him the information released by Dubai officials.
Mildiner, who said he holds a British and an Israeli passport, confirmed the name and the passport number matched his but said the date of birth was a few days off.
He said he did not know how anybody obtained his U.K. passport, issued in 2001 and never reported lost.
Britain’s Foreign Office said in a statement Tuesday that authorities were aware the “holders of six British passports have been named” as suspects in the case but added authorities believe the passports used were fraudulent.”
Inspector Clouseau at Interpol will find zee culprits and administer a judo chop before falling off the balcony and into the swimming pool.
