Human rights NGOs Human Rights Watch and Amnesty condemned the executions of two Palestinian by Hamas in the Gaza Strip after the terror group ruled that the men collaborated with Israel.

HRW said the executions were conducted after a trial where the two men's admissions were gleaned through use of torture. The organization said the executions were one of the largest "steps backwards" by Hamas since it took control of the Gaza Strip.

Amnesty said the trial was a military trial that did not stand up to the standards of fair trial, Israel Radio reported.
