One of many, too many casualties in a foreign-policy-fuelled war, it seemed, far too little a scandal to stand out among the daily dead – but now evidence leaked via the Alternative Intelligence Review site that this particular attack was triggered by Turkish surveillance authorities providing their Israeli counterparts with fake intelligence it would have been a senior Hamas operative wounded by insurgent snipers while seeking diplomatic contact with the Assad government.
