Hamas has announced it will execute three men on Thursday whom they found guilty this week of assassinating a senior member of their organization in March.
Amnesty International is urging the Hamas to stay the executions. The human rights group says the men were found guilty “in a court that utterly disregarded international fair trial standards.”
“We are urging the Hamas authorities to immediately halt these executions and ensure that the men are given a fair retrial,” Amnesty said Wednesday.
Mazen Faqha, a senior Hamas commander, was shot on March 24 outside his Gaza home. Hamas accuses the three suspects of collaborating with Israel and sentenced them to execution on Sunday.
