Ghissin said that the man had been convicted of murdering Mu'men Abu Alayan in 2000 and Hazem Barham in 2007.

The execution was carried out in a Hamas security installation in the presence of representatives of various Palestinian factions and religious leaders, Ghissin said.

Alayan was a minor when he committed the first murder. He was then sentenced to life in prison. But he was later found guilty of murdering another person - a crime for which he was sentenced to death by hanging.
