A Palestinian court in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday sentenced a man to death for “collaboration” with Israel.
A source in the Hamas govern
ment said that the man, whose name was not released, was found guilty of “collaboration with the Zionist occupation against the Palestinian people.”
The source did not give additional details.
The source claim that the defendant would be allowed to file an appeal against the verdict.
In June, Hamas authorities hanged two men who were also convicted of “collaboration” with Israel.
Hamas is also planning to execute in the coming days a man who was convicted of killing three Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
