B'Tselem Condemns Hamas Execution of 'Collaborators'


Left-wing NGO B'Tselem released a statement condemning the execution of more than 20 people in Gaza by Hamas in a matter of days. The men were publicly executed for being "collaborators", a term used to describe anyone thought to have cooperated with Israel.

The killings followed the assassination of three senior Hamas leaders on Thursday in an Israeli Air Force strike, which is said to have seriously shaken the Islamist terror group and triggered something of a witch hunt to discover how Israel had obtained precise information on their whereabouts at a time of war.
