No Inf. about Kidnapped Palestinian

There is no information on the whereabouts of a Palestinian engineer kidnapped in Ukraine by the Israeli spy agency back on February 19.

Dirar Abu Sisi was abducted by Mossad agents on February while on a Ukrainian train in the eastern city of Kharkiv en route to the capital Kiev, his wife Veronika told a Press TV correspondent.

She said her 42-year-old husband was the deputy head of an electric power station in the Gaza Strip.

Israel was intent on sabotaging the work of the only key power generating unit in Gaza, where Dirar served as the deputy director, Veronika said.

She criticized the performance of the Ukrainian law enforcement agencies.

"They [Sisi’s family] say the police refused to register their missing person claim, because Sisi is a foreign citizen. And the government officials have so far failed to provide a statement on this case," the Press TV correspondent reported.

Ukraine, however, said on Wednesday it has received no response from Israel about Sisi’s mysterious disappearance.

The abduction of Sisi has raised the concern of Palestinians, who are living in Ukraine, about insecurity and expansion of Mossad’s activities in the Eastern European country.

Some media have warned that the visa-free regime between Israel and Ukraine and the expansion of bilateral ties will damage the national interests of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, reports claim Abu Sisi is being held at a prison in Israel’s Ashkelon.

Ukrainian security services are facing mounting pressure over suspicions that they may have collaborated in the kidnapping.
