A team of investigators from the Irish police may be sent to Dubai to investigate the forging of five Irish passports. The passport numbers corresponded with legitimate passports in Ireland.

It was originally thought that only three fake Irish passports were used by the hit squad,  but it now transpires that five fraudulent Irish passports were used.

Though no one has claimed responsibility for the assassination, a hit squad from Mossad is suspected of murdering the Hamas representative in Dubai.

Yesterday, the Israeli Ambassador to Ireland, Zion Evrony, was summoned to the Department of Foreign Affairs. The Departments officials quizzed the ambassador about the alleged use of false passports for 30 minutes.

The ambassador was asked to cooperate and provide any information he could to investigative officials. Evrony stated he had no information to share and he said that he would relay the message from the Department of Foreign Affairs to his superiors in Israel.

Last night the Dubai police chief asked for Interpol to issue "a red notice against the head of Mossad." Dubai officials believe that the Mossad chief orchestrated the murder.
