ALICANTE — An aeronautical engineer has been arrested for allegedly designing missiles for the Palestinian terrorist organisations Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Marwan Ismail Dahman, who was born in Gaza, in Palestine but is a naturalised Spaniard, was arrested in Benidorm in the Alicante province, the Spanish daily El Pais reported.

He allegedly offered to design a new type of Qasam missile which can potentially be used for attacks on Israel.

Police sources said plans for the missile design, which had been sent by fax to the two Palestinian terrorist organisations were found in Dahman's house.

Dahman was helping to improve the design of the Qasam 2 missile.

Days earlier, the Israeli army had killed the original designer of this type of missile, Adnan al Ghul, in Gaza.
