According to the British daily, The Daily Mail,
Israeli agents told British intelligence that they were intending to carry out an 'overseas operation' using fake British passports before assassinating a Hamas official in Dubai.
The source did not say who the target would be, however. He also claimed that Britain was not involved in the attack and described the tip-off as a “courtesy call”.
