The United Arab Emirates (UAE) can prosecute Israel if it has proof of Israeli involvement in the killing of a Hamas leader on its land, Egypt's assembly speaker said.

Fathi Surour has made the remarks while talking to reporters on the sidelines of the Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union (AIPU) meeting here, WAM news agency reported on Tuesday.

He said the UAE can do that in pursuance of the international law if it has proven that an Israeli agent has murdered Mahmoud Al Mabhouh, commander of Palestine-based Islamic group Hamas.

The Arab countries will support UAE if it takes any action against Israel on the issue, Surour added.
