Israel is the only suspect in the 2004 death of Yasser Arafat, the chief Palestinian investigator in the case said Friday, a day after Swiss scientists said the Palestinian leader was probably poisoned by radioactive polonium.

The investigator, Tawfik Tirawi, spoke at a news conference held by the Palestinian team that has been investigating Arafat’s death. Tirawi asserted that Arafat did not die a natural death, but was evasive when asked repeatedly whether he believed Arafat was poisoned by polonium.

“It is not important that I say here that he was killed by polonium,” said Tirawi, who heads the Palestinian committee investigating Arafat’s mysterious death. “But I say, with all the details available about Yasser Arafat’s death, that he was killed, and that Israel killed him.”

At another point, the Palestinian investigator described Israel as the “first, fundamental and only suspect in the assassination of Yasser Arafat.”

Israel has denied any role in Arafat’s death, saying it had politically isolated him at the time and had no reason to assassinate him.

“Let me state this as simply as I can: Israel did not kill Arafat,” Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Friday, in response to the latest allegations.

“The Palestinians should stop this nonsense and stop raising these baseless accusations without any shadow of proof,” Palmor added.
