May 23, 2013: A military court in the Gaza Strip sentenced two people to death for collaborating with Israel and another to life with hard labor, the Hamas interior ministry said.
A Maâan reporter said two convicts, one of whom identified only by his initials AH and 43 years old, were sentenced to death by hanging.
It said the life term was handed down to a 53-year-old man identified as FM.
Two Palestinians were hanged in April 2010 for collaboration with Israel in the first executions carried out by Hamas which seized Gaza in June 2007 from the secular Palestinian Fatah movement. (Sources: Agence France Presse, Maâan, 23/05/2013)
