GAZA - Hamas's deputy leader has condemned the "unlawful" killing of six Palestinians in the Gaza Strip who were suspected of giving information to Israel.

Moussa Abu Marzouk, in comments posted on his Facebook page on Wednesday, urged the Islamist Hamas administration ruling Gaza to ensure that no one takes the law into their own hands.

"Punishing collaborators and especially those involved in the killing of our leaders must only be carried out in accordance with the law and through the legal procedures," Abu Marzouk said.

Citing an unidentified security source, Hamas's al-Aqsa radio station said the six men were shot dead on Tuesday after being "caught red-handed" working for Israel.

Gunmen chained the body of one of the alleged collaborators to a motorcycle and dragged it throughout the main streets of Gaza City. At least one body was beaten, kicked and trampled.

Troubled by graphic photographs and footage of the incident, Abu Marzouk added: "The way those collaborators were killed and the images after their death were completely unacceptable."
