Hamas Apologizes for Murder of Alleged Collaborators

The Hamas Political Burea announced on Wednesday that it is officially apologizing for the summary executions without trial of six Gaza residents who were suspected of collaborating with Israel.

The suspects' bodies were strewn in Gaza's main street where Gazans lynched and violated the bodies, and the sight gave rise to international condemnation.

The deputy head of the bureau, Dr. Mousa Abu Marzook, commented that "we must act against those who collaborate with Israel, but this is not the way to do so. We have given orders to refrain from such embarrassing activities."
