(ChattahBox)—The fallout continues for Israel, with the killing of a Hamas leader in a Dubai hotel, allegedly by a team of Israeli Mossad agents. The unidentified agents were captured on a Dubai hotel video and were found to have used stolen or cloned European passports. Now a Mossad agent, suspected of illegally obtaining a German passport, has been taken into custody in Poland at the request of German authorities.
According to a report by the AFP, the suspected Mossad agent has been identified as Uri Brodsky. “Israel’s foreign ministry confirmed that “an Israeli national was arrested in Poland,” adding that “the consulate of Israel is dealing with the case.”

The German publication Der Spiegel, plans to publish a detailed account of Brodsky’s arrest and his link to the mysterious killing of Hamas leader Mahmud al-Mabhuh in January at the Al Bustan Rotana hotel:
“According to an article to be published in Der Spiegel on Monday, the suspect identified as Uri Brodsky was arrested in early June on arrival at Warsaw’s airport on suspicions that he helped a member of the hit squad get a German passport in June 2009.”
As Chattahbox has previously reported, international warrants have been issued for the suspects caught on a Dubai hotel video camera. “Dubai authorities have issued warrants for the arrests of 26 suspects believed to be responsible for the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. The Hamas leader was drugged with a muscle relaxant, before being suffocated to death.”
