Death Penalty

A Hamas court has sentenced six Palestinians to death including a woman on charges of “collaborating with Israel”, according to a statement from the interior ministry in Gaza. 

The court issued a total of 14 convictions for collaboration with Israel; six were condemned to execution by hanging.

Iyad al-Bozum, the spokesman of the interior ministry in Gaza, applauded the rulings.

“Collaborators must realize the Israeli occupation will not be able to protect them,” he told a news conference.
