Hamas executed three Palestinians suspected of collaboration with Israel in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, according to Hamas-affiliated websites.

A senior Hamas security source was quoted as saying that the three, whose names were not released, were executed “after the completion of revolutionary procedures” against them.

The three were among seven suspected collaborators who were arrested while they were searching for targets in the Gaza Strip for Israel to attack, the source said.

It was not clear whether the remaining four suspected collaborators would also be executed.

The source claimed that Hamas and other “resistance groups” had uncovered several informants in the field and through “special intelligence techniques.”

The source called on residents of the Gaza Strip not to talk about the “resistance groups and their leaders, because the collaborators are looking for any piece of information to pass on to the enemy in light of pressure and threats by Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) officers.”

Sources in the Gaza Strip said that several suspected collaborators have been summarily executed by Hamas since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge.

Hamas security officers recently arrested a number of women on suspicion of passing on information to Israel about the movements of militiamen and the results of Israeli air strikes, they said.
