Hamas terror group sentences 6 Gazans to death for spying for Israel
BREAKING: A Hamas terror group court on Tuesday sentenced to death six Gazans, including a woman, for ‘spying for Israel’.
In total 14 people were sentenced for ‘collaborating with Israel’, with six sentenced to death by hanging or firing squad, the Hamas-ruled interior ministry in Gaza said in a statement.
Hamas Interior Minister Iyad al-Bazm said that Hamas security services were successful in thwarting a planned Israeli operation in Gaza.
It is unclear if he is referring to the November 11 special forces raid, in which an elite IDF unit entered into Gaza as a part of an undercover mission. The force was exposed and an exchange of fire erupted. An IDF officer identified only as Lieutenant Colonel ‘M’ was killed and another officer was seriously wounded during the operation.
At least seven Muslim terrorists, including a Hamas leader in the Khan Yunis area, were eliminated after a heavy fire exchange. All the eliminated terrorists were part of the Hamas terror group armed wing Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, whose sole mission is to murder Jews.
Like ISIS, Hamas has held public executions in the past of those it accuses of collaborating with Israel, including dragging bodies behind motorcycles.
