LIFTING a nearly 25-year veil of secrecy, Israel is admitting that it killed the deputy of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in a 1988 raid in Tunis.
Israel has long been suspected of assassinating Khalil al-Wazir, who was better known by his nom de guerre Abu Jihad.
But only on Thursday did the country’s military censor clear the Yediot Ahronot newspaper to publish the information, including an interview with the commando who killed him.
Dozens of brazen operations have been attributed to Israel over the decades. But Israel rarely takes responsibility.
The acknowledgement gives a rare glimpse into the country’s covert operations.
Abu Jihad founded the Palestinian Liberation Organisation with Arafat and was blamed for a series of attacks against Israelis.
