Mossad chief Meir Dagan sees no reason to resign over a scandal-fraught assassination in Dubai, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is unlikely to ask him to, a confidant of the Israeli spymaster said on Thursday.

While Israel has declined to comment on the January 20 slaying of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) named the suspected killers, including several who had copied the European passports of actual immigrants to Israel.

But the confidant, who asked not to be identified, told Reuters: “Dagan has no intention of quitting before his tenure is completed.”

99% sure of Israeli hand: Dubai

Dubai police chief said he was 99 per cent certain that Israel was involved in the January killing of a Hamas militant at a Dubai luxury hotel, according to a Emirati newspaper on Thursday.

“Our investigations reveal Mossad is involved in the murder of (Mahmoud) al-Mabhouh. It is 99 per cent, if not 100 percent,” police chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim said.
