Jonathan Cook reports on the kidnapping of Dirar Abu Sisi,
operations manager of Gaza’s only power plant,
by Israeli Mossad agents in Ukraine
amid deep suspicions of official Ukrainian complicity.
Israel admitted this week that it was behind the abduction of a Gazan engineer
who went missing more than a month ago while travelling on a train in Ukraine.
Israeli officials confirmed that Dirar Abu Sisi, 42,
was being held in Israel’s Shikma prison, near Ashkelon,
after a judge partially lifted reporting restrictions late on 20 March.
However, the reasons for Abu Sisi’s abduction are still covered by the gag order.
The whereabouts of Abu Sisi, the operations manager of Gaza’s only power plant,
have been the subject of intense speculation
since he disappeared on 18 February as he travelled on a train to the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.
