Hamas Sentences to Death Man Accused of Collaborating With Israel

YERUSHALAYIM -

A Hamas court in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday sentenced a man to death for the alleged crime of “collaboration” with Israel, The Jerusalem Post reported.

A source in Hamas said that the man, whose name was not released, was found guilty of “collaboration with the Zionist occupation against the Palestinian people,” but would not elaborate.

The source added 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.

In the coming days, authorities in the Hamas-ruled enclave are set to execute a man who was convicted of killing three Palestinians there.
