Has Israel admitted responsibility for that assassination? I thought there were strong indications that it was someone else, such as a rival Hamas group, had arranged it.
While Israeli operatives have been known to borrow identities from other countries in the past, doing it for so many countries at the same time, and so openly, seems like it would be unnecessarily hostile diplomatically.
Its freaky how other worldly the photos of the alleged assassins
In 1997, Canada pulled its ambassador from Israel after two Mossad agents were caught using Canadian passports during a failed assassination attempt on Khalid Mashaal -- a leading Hamas official -- in Jordan.
Israel assured Canada then that Canadian passports would no longer be used for covert purposes.
However, the National Post reported in 2002 that an informant had supplied information to Israeli agents posing as Canadians while on a mission to locate a senior Hamas leader in Gaza. Militant Palestinian leader Salah Shehadeh was later assassinated by Israeli forces in a July 23 missile attack that also killed 14 others, including nine children.
