Hamas Sentences Man to Death for Collaborating With Israel

A military court in Gaza also sentenced another man to life in prison on the same charge, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

A Gaza military court sentenced a man suspected of collaborating with Israel to death on Thursday, and sentenced another suspect to life in prison on the same charge.

The court did not set a date for the execution, and the names of the defendants were not publicized, according to a report in Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

The Hamas government in Gaza has put close to two dozen people to death since it took power there in 2007, according to the Palestinian Center for Human Rights.

Under Palestinian law, collaborating with Israel is punishable by death, as are murder and drug trafficking.
