Hamas cracked down on suspected Israel collaborators during last summer's Operation Protective Edge, killing 18 in one day.

Gunmen wearing masks and dressed in black shot seven of those condemned, whose faces were covered and hands bound, in front of worshipers emerging from the Omari Mosque, a.k.a the Great Mosque of Gaza, on Palestine Square in the Old City, in the first public executions in the Strip since the 1990s.

A further 11 were killed at an abandoned police station near Gaza City, Hamas security officials said.

“The resistance has begun an operation called ‘Strangling the Necks,’ targeting collaborators who aid the occupation, kill our people and destroy houses,” said Al-Majd, a website run by Hamas’s internal security service.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights denounced the killing of Gazans by Hamas.
