A Palestinian court in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday sentenced a man to death for
collaboration with Israel.
A source in the Hamas government said that the
man, whose name was not released, was found guilty of “collaboration with the
Zionist occupation against the Palestinian people.” The source did not give
additional details, but claimed that the defendant would be allowed to file an
appeal against the verdict.
In June, Hamas authorities hanged two men who
were also convicted of “collaboration” with Israel.
Hamas is also
planning to execute – in the coming days – a man who was convicted of killing
three Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
