Al Qassam Brigades leader dies in UAE

In two separate incidents in 1989, Hamas kidnapped and murdered two Israeli soldiers, Sgt. Avi Sasportas and Cpl. Ilan Saadon.

The terrorist responsible for these murders, Mahmoud Al-Mabhuh, was one of Hamas' Al Qassam Brigades co-founders. Some time later he ran away from Gaza and went off to live in the UAE.

He just died of cancer in a hospital there.
